This practical, scenario based course affords candidates the opportunity to practice skills and contextualise theory in realistic situations.
The two-day (16 hour) course draws on the most recent peer-reviewed evidence for the initial treatment of injuries and illnesses in remote areas. As such, some protocols would not be appropriate in an urban setting.
Course content is based on current guidelines published by:
- UK Resuscitation Council
- American Heart Association
- Wilderness Medical Society
- currently accepted guidance and best-practice from advisory bodies and published evidence for the treatment of First Aid in a remote or wilderness context.
