Dealing with Medical Emergencies

Medical emergency training course for healthcare workers

If you work in any healthcare setting, it’s essential that you know how to deal with medical emergencies – designed for newcomers who need full training or for those who need a refresher, our medical emergency course will equip you with everything you need to know if you’re faced with an urgent situation.

Every healthcare worker knows that illnesses can quickly worsen, or a patient or service-user can suddenly be struck down with an unexpected medical emergency. Training to deal with these high-pressured scenarios can make all the difference to the casualty’s survival or recovery.

Our medical emergency training course has been specially developed for staff in any healthcare setting, including:

  • Community care
  • Nursing homes
  • Residential homes

The in-depth information and practical experience provided during the course will enable workers to assess the patient and implement any emergency interventions while waiting for other medical professionals, such as paramedics, to arrive at the scene.

What does our medical emergency course cover?

When it comes to dealing with medical emergencies, time is of the essence – you need to think and act fast in order to minimise the risk of further deterioration and injury.
