The team at R2Ri contains significant expertise in the Remote Area and Wilderness Medical Fields - as well as Urban First Aid. Team members represented industry bodies during the Institute of Outdoor Learning consultation on Outdoor First Aid. Other team members are involved in writing the wilderness medicine elements of new european pre hospital qualifications.
Our Remote Area and Wilderness courses are detailed above. We deliver outdoor first aid through to pre hospital care courses.
We also offer a holistic programme to train non medical professionals, who may be responsible for the safety of others in remote areas (such as expedition leaders), allowing them to undertake a suitable programme of risk management and medical training, including testing their skills before deployment.
You will see our Plan, Train Check, Act programme above which encompasses Off Site Safety Management, Wilderness First responder, Prolonged Field Care and Pre Hospital Trauma Life Support. This programme allows a holistic approach to risk and safety management in remote areas and also allows non medics to access higher level training and suitable training and testing of skills dealing with how to cope with a patient in a remote area, with limited kit, when help is not coming for some time.
The R2Ri team invests heavily in training and keeping up to date with medical developments, techniques and equipment.
The team has extensive expeditionary experience in all environments. Team, members have also provided medical cover for solo expeditions to both Poles.
We run a number of Remote Area Medical Courses, from Outdoor First Aid, Remote Area First Aid, Pre Hospital Care Courses to 7 day Remote Area and Wilderness First Responder Courses, Advanced training for medics going to remote areas and Medical Gases courses.
