||This report describes a survey of the retention of knowledge of first-aiders. Results suggest that first-aiders retain only a percentage of what is learned on first-aid courses and that few first-aiders update and refresh their memories by looking at the first-aid manual between refresher courses. More work needs to be done to identify the cause of low retention of learned material.
