The adult course covers topics such as:

Allergy & Anaphylaxis; Asthma; LVF – Adult Pneumonia; Stroke & TIA; Chest Pain & Thrombolysis; Head Injury; ENT Emergencies; Wounds, Burns & Tetanus; Pain Relief; Seizures

Feedback from previous courses:

I picked up lots of useful tips, particularly regarding the range of drugs that I should consider using in a remote pre-hospital environment and the management of wounds and minor injuries.

Excellent course, loved been able to do it online, like structure of a topic each, 2 week break worked well. I enjoyed that the sessions were interactive, learned lots of useful information, thank you.

A very useful course that has increased my confidence in emergency situations.
