Description

Scottish Rugby are working in partnership with World Rugby to provide a first aid in rugby qualification for club and school volunteers who may be asked to respond to an injured rugby player.

Course Content:

On successful completion of the course, a pitch side responder will be able to:

  • Appreciate safety hazards for a first aider.
  • Protect the neck and perform an assessment of airway, breathing and circulation.
  • Recognise the difficulties in telling major and minor injury apart in the early stages – particularly head injuries
  • Recognise cardiac arrest and perform effective basic life support and safe defibrillation.
  • Initially manage a potentially spinally injured player safely in an emergency situation.
  • Understand the role of the first aider in the chain of survival.
  • Manage common limb injuries including sprains, strains and fractures.
  • Activate appropriate help
