First Aid in the FieldEnquire
Confidence in delivering lifesaving first aid, conducting an effective primary and secondary survey and stabilising bleeds, breaks and other injuries can help to reduce the rate of unnecessary deaths and severe injuries in any context.
The First Aid in the Field course has been developed, and is delivered by, certified first aid trainers with extensive paramedical experience of disaster relief and humanitarian work in high risk contexts. Focusing on a wide range of context-specific scenarios, injuries and conditions, the course focusses on how to address real concerns confidently.
Designed for a maximum of 12 participants the course is delivered as a one-day training, best delivered at ILS’ outdoor training locations to enhance the immersive, simulation-based and practical nature of this training.
ILS’ overarching objectives in its first aid courses are to enhance confidence in administering basic simple lifesaving measures well: Do Simple Well
The training is designed for organisations who work and deploy staff to complex, high risk, austere or remote environments where a reasonable standard of healthcare or medical response is not immediately available.
