As part of the Paramedics elearning programme, 10 sessions are available to support paramedics in dealing with a range of injuries, with the Urgent Care for Paramedics – Injuries module.
The elearning sessions which take approximately 20 minutes to complete, include, but are not limited to:
- Ankle Injuries: aims to provide the underlying theory and assessment techniques to carry out these assessments effectively
- Knee Injuries: aims to give the pre-hospital clinician a greater understanding of knee injuries and red flags which may indicate a serious injury requiring further assessment and treatment
- Elbow Injuries: aims to provide the underlying theory and techniques to carry out these assessments effectively
- Minor Head Injury: aims to develop a foundational underpinning knowledge surrounding history taking, physical assessment and management of patients presenting with minor head injuries in the out-of-hospital environment
- Minor Neck Injury: This session is designed to equip paramedics with the knowledge and theory to safely manage minor neck trauma at the scene of a minor road traffic accident (RTC). There will also be an emphasis on good safety netting if the patient is safe to discharge
