The immediate care course is a multi-disciplinary course for experienced HCPs with 3-years post registration experience who have pre-hospital care experience and who have no practice restrictions or are subject to fitness to practice proceedings. Course participants should have confidence in the provision of advanced life support and an understanding of the <C>AcBCDE approach to assessment and care. Please see the course information form (CIF) for further information. The course is designed to assist those preparing to sit higher professional exams, such as the Diploma in Immediate Medical Care.
The course allows participants to adapt their own scope of practice to the pre-hospital environment. It will consider the complexities of the environment, resources and onward treatment pathways across a range of patient ages and presentations (medical and trauma) including mass casualty incidents. A focus will be brought to issues of human factors in the different scenarios encountered so as to enable the individual to work within formal multi-disciplinary emergency care teams. This will include undertaking the team leader role.
Specialist modules will encompass:
- pre-hospital care of the infant and the child
- assisting with a pre-hospital emergency anaesthetic
Pre-requisites for course attendance:
- A minimum of 3-years post-registration experience with no practice restrictions or subject to fitness proceedings.
- Experience of pre-hospital care provision.
- Confidence in the provision of advanced life support.
