Event description

Description

Description: This course runs over 2 days using simulation as its primary method of content delivery. A simulated operational environment is created using a range of effects including paintball markers. Course content is based on recommendations from the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC). Successful completion of the course will require participants to apply TEM theory & skills while functioning effectively in small teams in stressed environments.

Content: Participants will experience the continuum of casualty care from point of injury, through care in austere and high threat environments, to casualty evacuation. Specific content includes: tactical movement and communication, Remote Casualty Assessment, high threat casualty extraction, application of tactical tourniquets, use of specialized dressings, airway & breathing management in adverse environments, disaster triage, pre-hospital resuscitation and evacuation. Human factors elements addressed will include: situational awareness, dynamic problem solving, and teamwork while under stress.

Participants: The course is intended for motivated participants wishing to gain a better understanding of TEM, or whom wish to refresh/expand prior TEM/ pre-hospital/ disaster management training. Expected participants include: Police and Military Medics, Paramedics, Critical Care/Emergency Doctors and Nurses. No prior tactical experience is necessary. Participants must have a good level of physical fitness, with the ability to crawl, drag weighted objects, undertake short sprints, work in confined and visually restricted environments. While the course focuses on Tactical Emergency Medicine in a civilian setting, participants with current and past military experience are encouraged to attend. This course is not appropriate for personnel without prior medical training, or who may be concerned by work in restricted and stressful environments.
