Some of our Speicalist Skills team recently attended the international Trauma Care Conference to talk about our Immedidate Emergency Care (IEC) course.
This year's Trauma Care Conference, organised by the Trauma Care Council, was about 'from injury to recovery - linking the chain of survival.'
Our team was on hand to talk to delegates about the Immediate Emergency Care (IEC) training we deliver.
The IEC course is designed to recognise life threatening injuries and administer treatment. It equips learners with a higher level of medical skill meaning they can medically assist a patient until paramedics arrive and continue to assist the paramedic thereafter.
It provides fire and rescue personnel, non-operational managers and community responders with a recognised qualifi cation. It also benefi ts the Ministry of Defence (MOD), police forces, the prison service and private companies supplying rescue personnel, by providing the skills, knowledge and understanding to deal with medical emergencies until the ambulance service arrives.
Phil Brewis, our IEC specialist, said: "We've had a great day attending the Trauma Care Conference and it was a great opportunity to talk to frontline sevices about our IEC course."
"We've delivered this course for over 5 years and our customers include fire and rescue services, MOD, the police, a nuclear power station and a large multi-national company. This IEC programme is the only Ofqual regulated qualification in the UK providing delegates with a Level 3 Certificate. It is delivered by Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered operational paramedics. As part of the IEC programme, delegates also receive a Level 3 award in First Aid at Work. The course is also rated Category D on the FPHC PHEM Skills Framework."
