This course aims to develop your ability to apply your clinical reasoning experience in a challenging and resource limited environment. No previous experience of working in the prehospital care setting is required. A team of experienced prehospital consultants and paramedics will deliver a mixture of teaching and simulation to achieve the learning outcomes of the course.
You will be encouraged to undertake an elective observation day in a prehospital care system and share your experience as part of the module. Please note that the simulation element of this course may require you to physically manipulate equipment in unfamiliar surroundings. The elective element may require you to attend events or emergencies in the prehospital setting.
A learning portfolio will be required to be completed and submitted in order for each student to successfully pass the course.
The course will combine a range of educational methodologies to deliver the curriculum:
- Face to face days to deliver prehospital skills teaching, simulation and moulage education. This will be facilitated by a multi-disciplinary team of paramedics and doctors, all with extensive prehospital and teaching experience.
- Practice placement which will include the educational guidance to promote learning and reflective practice in a variety of observational exposures in different prehospital settings.
- Online activities: Live theory teaching and small group tutorials. Tutorials will use a case debriefing approach to share placement experience.
Please note places are limited and in order to apply delegates will need to submit a 500 word statement of interest together with CV and relevant Qualification by 6th December.
