Course Objectives

The primary objectives of pre-hospital training are to:

Educate healthcare providers on the assessment and management of acute medical and traumatic emergencies.

Develop and refine essential patient assessment skills, including airway management, breathing assessment, circulation assessment, and neurological assessment.

Instruct in the delivery of intermediate life support (ILS) interventions, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), advanced airway management, the safe administration of life-saving medication, and administration of emergency medical gasses

Train in the use of specialised equipment and technology used in prehospital care, such as automated external defibrillators (AEDs), airway adjuncts such as oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal airways, and the accurate placement of supraglottic airways such as iGel

Foster effective decision-making skills under pressure, enabling healthcare providers to prioritise patients, manage multiple patients simultaneously, and make sound judgments in emergency situations.

Course Content

Pre-hospital training programmes typically encompass a wide range of topics, including:

Anatomy and Physiology

A strong understanding of human anatomy and physiology is crucial for interpreting patient presentations and making accurate diagnoses.


This area delves into the underlying mechanisms of disease, enabling healthcare providers to identify the cause of patient ailments and tailor their treatment accordingly.

Emergency Medical Procedures

The course covers a variety of emergency procedures, including airway management, bleeding control, wound care, and splinting techniques.


The role of medications in pre-hospital care is emphasised, with instruction on the administration of essential medications and their potential side effects.

Medical Equipment Familiarisation
