Andrew Tongs is the BHS resuscitation educator. He has a defined role in providing training and assessments for medical staff. This is particularly important for all medical staff who work in critical care and/or are a member of the MET or code blue teams. We have provided his pre reading materials. These are considered mandatory pre reading for the Emergency registrars, and ICU registrars and medical registrars.

Education sessions will be run face to face with simulation sessions, and these are of value if the didactic components of teaching are replaced by pre reading and preparation by professional and committed medical staff.
