ASLS Blended Learning Course

The Advanced Stroke Life Support (ASLS®) Blended Learning Course is designed to help international in-hospital and prehospital healthcare professionals identify, evaluate and manage patients with stroke. This course was developed in partnership with The University of Miami Gordon Center for Simulation and Innovation in Medical Education.

This course is now available in International English (IVE). IVE training materials have been updated to reflect global stroke epidemiology, differences in the availability of treatment options, the wide variety of stroke systems of care, and international stroke care quality improvement programs, and now include metric units of measurement applicable to students outside of the United States.

Currently, the new ASLS® Blended Learning Course is only available in India, Mexico and the Middle East region as we build out a new network of Faculty and Instructors for this discipline. If you are an AHA International Training Center or Quality Improvement hospital interested in learning when ASLS will be available in your country, complete the form.
