Description

About the course

This course offers the minimum level of first aid certification recommended by the Health and Safety Executive. As a clinician, it is expected that you would know what to do in a medical emergency. With evidence continuing to show how quickly your skills deteriorate, you should be aware of the medical, legal and professional implications of getting it wrong.

It is a common complaint that traditional first aid training does not address the needs of the healthcare professional: this course encourages delegates to re-evaluate their emergent skills and knowledge and discuss their own experiences and concerns amongst their peers, based on actual scenarios and case studies.

Delegates receive training in a range of subjects, including:

  • Legalities of first aid: duty and standard of care, professional obligation and scope of practice
  • The primary survey: AcBCDE
  • Basic life support: Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2005, adult and paediatric algorithims, AED usage
  • Early recognition of acute coronary syndromes such as AMI, HCM, reference to sudden cardiac death etc
  • Management of the unconscious casualty: GCS vs AVPU - emergent neurological assessment
  • Management of trauma, medical and environmental scenarios: case studies and open forum

On completion of the course, delegates receive the nationally-recognised 'Emergency First Aid at Work' certificate, valid for three years.

Important information

Please note that registration is from 9.00am and the course runs from 9.30-5.30pm. A sandwich and salad lunch is provided.
