// Remote Area and Wilderness Casualty Care (TM) Series: RAW Casualty Care (TM):
// Remote/Expedition Medical Officer: Training Essentials
The R/EMO:TE Medic Training Programme:
This programme is designed specifically for Medical Professionals and Other Allied Health Care Professionals, to allow delegates to progress through a series of modules to allow them to operate as remote area medics.
The programme can either be undertaken as separate modules or, in 2022, in blocks. Please note, that due to the pre reading requirements, the Pre Hospital Trauma Life Support course module must be undertaken as a stand alone.
The Modules are:
In 2023, there will be an option for delegates to undertake the whole programme (save PHTLS) in a 9 day run or simply to undertake separate modules at their convenience.
This combination of courses introduces those who already have a medical background to wilderness medicine (AWLS), then develop their knowledge and skills with wound care, IV and IM modules, dentistry, then Road Traffic Collision Management (the number 1 cause of death when travelling overseas). Delegates then focus on improving their skills and increasing knowledge levels through the internationally recognised (c 64 countries) Pre Hospital Trauma Life Support. Having developed a good, solid foundation, through lectures, discussions, q and a, skill stations, pre reading, scenarios and assessments, delegates then put their skills to the test, in a supportive environment, with a 2 day Prolonged Field Care course - simulating a prolonged field care scenario, comms use and evacuation including training on working with helicopters.
The Off Site Safety Management course is a risk management course, which we have delivered to many medics, with rave reviews - an this covers planning and delivery fo expeditions, including health considerations, risk assessments, minor and major incident management. The course is an excellent prevention tool.
Delegates can choose to add a further module - the Rescue 3 accredited Water Safety For Expedition Leaders, that was developed by experts at Plas y Brenin, at our request, with input from ourselves.
This hugely valuable programme will allow delegates to build on their existing medical qualifications, develop knowledge, skills, partake in multiple scenarios - all delivered by genuine remote area medics including Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Military Medics, Rescue medics and Rescue Operatives (as well as specialist risk managers and lawyers).
We know the modules work - they are tried and tested and delegates tell us relevant modules prepared them perfectly for their first or subsequent deployments.
Doctor, Nurse, Paramedic, Military Medic, ODP, FREC 4 and above
Pre study will be necessary to pass the exam and assessments.
