IMPORTANT RE COVID-19
The APC labs have closed to external courses for the duration of 2020. Therefore the course is returning to the Quest Apartment Complex, Abbotsford for the forseable future.
This venue is ideal at present as it allows us to maintain social distancing requirements whilst continuing the learning process. Hand sanitiser and face masks will be provided for those that wish to use them, and for everyone during closer contact practical work.
HOWEVER, if you have any cough, cold or flu like symptoms, or have been in contact with a confirmed COVID case, please do not attend.
All candidates will have their temperatures taken at the beginning of the day to ensure screening for the safety of all.
You have 50 minutes to prove yourself with any cardiorespiratory patient, in a strange new environment in exam pressure situation.
There are many things you can't control. How will your patient or actor behave? How will your assessors react?
However, there are many things that CAN be controlled...
We are fortunate of three things:
1. The APC seem to be creatures of habit
2. We have access to the combined experience and recalls of year of APC exams
3. There is now only one venue for the exams and we are finding out more information all the time regarding setup, equipment and processes.
With logical, methodical and both physiological and evidence based learning, Even the least confident candidate can be successful!
On the course we aim to
provide a solid understanding of the principals of physiology and pathophysiology which govern all cardiorespiratory treatments.
provide an in-depth and evidence based understanding of the most commonly seen cases
provide the tools to clinically reason the less commonly seen cases.
provide not only the competence , but the confidence to do all this in an exam scenario!
