Community Open Doors Day: Learning to Save Lives – Immediate Life Support and CPR skills

18 Mar ‘17

10.00AM - 4.00PM

Venue: Health Skills Centre, Room 1A91, Cottrell building, University of Stirling

This event will showcase the University’s use of high-fidelity simulated human patients to teach Immediate Life Support skills.  This is a Resuscitation Council (UK) course not offered routinely to all nursing students in the UK but delivered as an additional experience and qualification for our students on all three campuses.  This event consists of observations of simulation scenarios and practical teaching sessions with the nursing lecturers and students demonstrating these skills using the simulated human mannequins.  There will also be an opportunity for visitors to participate by practising the CPR skills they have observed.  Pre-booking is essential for this event.

Age limit:  Please note that while we encourage people of all ages to learn about CPR, some simulation scenarios can involve sensitive topics that may not be suitable for very young children.

We will hold a number of sessions throughout the day, and pre-booking is essential.

Session 1:  10.00 - 10.40am
Session 2:  10.45 - 11.25am
Session 3:  11.30 - 12.15pm


Session 4:     1.00 - 1.40pm
Session 5:     1.45 - 2.25pm
Session 6:     2.30 - 3.15pm

Our Community Open Doors Day aims to bring every part of the campus alive by inviting the local community in to join us in celebrating the anniversary. The programme includes: engaging talks; a Science Fair in the Atrium; a chance to explore the history of the University through the Archives; participation in a series of fun activities; and an adaptation of the daily mile challenge to tie the events and activities together.  

This event is open to all and is free to attend but places should be booked in advance. Please book online here.
