This course is written for Australian emergency care providers including emergency nurses, pre‐hospital care providers, nurse practitioners, general practice nurses, emergency medical technicians and allied health practitioners including occupational therapists and physiotherapists who are caring for trauma patients.
This course uses the Emergency Care on the Streets textbook, the patient journey from pre-hospital to definitive care. Using a body systems approach, the course provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of adult and paediatric emergencies. Implications for clinical practice is supported by professional practice, clinical skills, research, evidence based practice, and legal, ethical and cultural issues.
Clinical assessment, physiology, management and rationale for intervention of common and not so common emergency presentations are also covered, with each section of the course providing clear and relevant examples for Paramedics.
The book Nancy Caroline’s Emergency Care in the Streets brings together a team of highly respected clinical practitioners and academics to deliver the most up-to-date text dealing with the practical procedures and evidence experienced by emergency and trauma care providers every day and compliment this course fully.
This course provides you with the skills required by state ambulance authorities and non-emergency transport companies to deliver patient care and transport services. Requirements vary from state to state.
