BASICS Scotland would like to announce the dates for the next Adult Tele-education Course, presented by Karyn Webster. This 10 week course will start on Monday the 28th August and run for 10 weeks with a 2-week break in October.

Tele-education by BASICS Scotland is an online learning resource ideal for remote and rural practitioners eager to reinforce and develop their skills in pre-hospital emergency care. The benefit of Tele-education is that participants can take part without having to leave their home or place of work.

Topics on this course include:

  • LVF – Adult Pneumonia
  • Stroke & TIA
  • Chest Pain & Thrombolysis
  • Head Injury
