CAUH Professor Kim Chan-Woong Receives the Best ACLS Faculty Award
Emergency Medicine Professor Kim Chan-Woong of Chung-Ang University Hospital (CAUH) received the Best Advanced Cardiopulmonary Life Support (ACLS) Faculty Award from the Korean Association of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (KACPR).
Every year, the KACPR confers the Best ACLS Faculty Award on one educator who actively took part in providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) education for people over the last year among members of the KACPR.
Professor Kim Chan-Woong has provided CPR education for medical practitioners, students, and the general public since Chung-Ang Institute for Simulation, Education & Research (CASER) was designated as a CPR education center under the KACPR in 2007.
CAUH has offered theoretical and practical training sessions for all the members of CAU and CAUH since 2014. Thanks to this, every member who works for CAU and CAUH received a “CPR and AED education” completion certificate.
In addition, CAUH developed a mandatory certificate course of “Korean Advanced Life Support (KALS) Provider” in 2016. Since then, CAUH has provided this certificate course for its first-year residents so that they have a full understanding of CPR.
Professor Kim Chan-Woong, this year’s awardee, said that both learning correct CPR and practicing it repeatedly are very crucial since this can save a person in danger. He also added that he would put more effort into not only raising public awareness of CPR, but protecting people from sudden cardiac arrest by providing customized CPR education programs.
