SubjectNCEBP 2: Evaluation of complex medical interventions
PURPOSE: Adequate education in first aid and basic life support (BLS) should be considered as an essential aspect of the medical curriculum. The objective of this study was to investigate the current medical training in first aid and BLS at all 8 medical schools in the Netherlands. SUMMARY: An evaluation was made, by sending a questionnaire to all medical schools, regarding whether the medical training was performed in accordance with the national Dutch guidelines for medical education. The response was 100%. Seven of the eight medical schools train their students in first aid and BLS during the medical curriculum. An average of only 38% of the clinical pictures and diseases and 69% of the skills were mastered at the level-defined national Dutch guidelines. CONCLUSION: The medical education in the Netherlands does not meet the required objectives as stated in the national Dutch guidelines concerning first aid and BLS.
