The Resuscitation Education Initiative (REdI) is a national program to standardize, document, track and monitor the provision of Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Basic Life Support (BLS) training throughout VHA. REdI is a department within the EES Simulation Learning Education and Research Network (SimLEARN). It provides critical train-the-trainer clinical training support using American Heart Association guidelines to provide training to large numbers of VA medical center clinical and non-clinical staff.
REdI is a VHA health care transformation initiative under the New Models of Care Specialty Care Operating Plan. The goals of the REdI Program are to expand the number of employees certified in ACLS/BLS over time, in order to advance the quality of patient care and to improve the documentation for resuscitation training.
The REdI program is co-located within the VHA SimLEARN National Simulation Center in Orlando, Florida.
