This program helps caregivers maintain required life-saving skills, like Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support.   Ultimately, the program stems from research that indicates a rapid skills degradation after initial training, sometimes as quickly as 6 months. This cutting-edge technology is a new approach to maintaining high-quality CPR and is directly tied to improvement in patient outcomes.

These kinds of innovative technologies are particularly helpful in rural areas where medical facilities can often be located miles away from training classes. The RQI program combines short skill sessions with online eSimulation cases.
