This is a one day course based on the latest Intensive Care Society guidelines for transport of the critically ill patients. The course includes short lectures, skill stations, discussion groups and demonstrations. All aspects of transport are included such as stabilisation, ethics, paediatrics, encephalopathic liver patients, helicopters etc.
The course includes safe patient transport, medical equipment requirements and considerations, personal protective equipment (PPE) and the potential dangers and pitfalls which may be encountered by the patient transfer teams during transfers.
By the end of the course, candidates should be able to safely transfer a patient between hospitals (either by road ambulance or air ambulance) and be aware of the potential difficulties that may be encountered and how to manage these appropriately and safely.
This is an ATACC course delivered using the latest Intensive Care Society guidelines and is an essential pre-requisite for anyone involved in patient transfers.
This is a one day practically-based scene safety course run with a Fire and Rescue Road Safety Unit; specifically for doctors, nurses and paramedics working in the pre-hospital domain. The course includes kinematics, safe scene approach, personal protective equipment (PPE) and scene assessment/management.
The course is designed for medical staff working in the pre-hospital environment and aims to make candidates aware of the potential dangers that may be encountered and how to work alongside the emergency services in order to eliminate/minimise these risks and to manage the casualties effectively.
Comprised of short lectures combined with demonstrations and practical rescue exercises, this makes the course an ideal introduction to those new to this very specialised area of medicine.
Course instructors are drawn from both the medical world and the Emergency Services and the course is usually held at one of the Regional Fire and Rescue Training Centres in the U.K..
By the end of the course, candidates should be able to attend a pre-hospital incident; aware of their own safety and protective equipment requirements.
They will then be able to liaise with the emergency Services to prioritise care and formulate a plan for casualty rescue.
This is an ATACC course run in conjunction with Regional Ambulance Services, Regional Fire and Rescue Services and local A&E trainers.
This is a one day training course using state-of-the-art equipment (such as Sim-Man) in critical incident training. Candidates will receive training in a variety of scenarios incorporating critical illness and the management of life-threatening medical scenarios (both pre-hospital and in-hospital). This is designed for medical practitioners working in both environments and who need to improve their clinical skills in these situations.
The course consists entirely of practical moulages and demonstrations (using Sim-Man) and discussion/group debriefings of the scenarios encountered.
By the end of the course, candidates should be able to manage each of the various life-threatening and critical illness scenarios encountered during the course appropriately and safely.
This is an ATACC course delivered using the latest and state-of-the-art medical training simulation equipment and is an essential course for all anaesthetists, surgeons, general medicine physicians, intensive/critical care physicians, emergency medicine physicians, nurses and paramedics who may encounter such critically ill patients with life-threatening medical conditions.
Each of these courses are run regularly throughout the year..
