Roadmap for Hospital Resuscitation Excellence

The AHA’s Scientific Statement on Resuscitation Education made the following recommendations for implementing a resuscitation program:

  • Incorporate Mastery Learning
    • Minimum passing score
    • Prioritize behaviors focused on patient safety and clinical outcomes
  • Use Deliberate Practice as a Methodology
  • Establish a performance goal for both Mastery and Deliberate practice
  • Use Overlearning for Behaviors likely to Decay

All elements must be implemented  to achieve a high-reliability program.
