    PIRATES FIRST AID COURSE 2017

    The much anticipated EFR Course for 2017 now has a venue and course dates for this year. There are two courses on offer: This year we will run only the full EFR course but have plans for a refresher course at the beginning of next season. 

    Whilst the courses are open to all, this is a must have for all Head Coaches and Team First Aiders, is very important for coaches and is a great course for all parents, players and friends of the Club.

    Overview

    Accidents happen and they are a fact of life. Rugby is a contact sport and as such the risk of incidents goes up. However incidents can happen in all sports and in all facets of your daily life. As a coach, referee, trainer, manager, neighbour or parent the responsibility for being able to provide initial care lies with you. At tournaments and on tours the club will in general have an appointed First Response person (EFR or EMT) with a wider range of skills, however they often need help and as such trained assistance is better than untrained assistance - that said all help is always most welcome.

    What will you learn

    How to deal with the type of injuries and medical emergencies that can happen during sporting activities, at home and in daily life.

    Who Should Attend

    Anyone involved in sporting activities - from referees and coaches to players, tour managers, mums and dads etc.

    Every team/squad should have at least one qualified First Aider with them.

    The program consists of a combination of three stand-alone courses plus some additional skills:
    • Primary Care & Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) & Care for Children and Infants (Primary)
      • Scene assessment, barrier use, primary assessment, adult, child & infant CPR – Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, conscious/ unconscious choking adult, child & infant, serious bleeding management adult, child & infant, spinal injury management (serious impact injuries) and shock management
    • Orientation to Providing Oxygen
    • Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
    • Secondary Care (Assessment First Aid)
      • Injury assessment, illness assessment, bandaging, primary treatment / splinting for dislocations / breaks / fractures, head / neck / spinal injuries, concussion management
    • Additional skills focus appropriate to the sports include:
      • Strains and sprains (injured, stretched or torn muscles, tendons and ligaments), eye & body injuries (cuts, penetrations, blows and crushing), immobilization techniques, heat stroke, hypothermia, burns (thermal), drowning, managing parents and spectators, and using the sports first aid equipment provided
    The skills and scenarios are based on actual sporting incidents, the equipment available (we aim to use some talented young actors).

    Directions for G17 Classroom: Enter through the gates of the school and continue along the gates at the undercover area. Turn right and follow path all the way to the end (playground will be on your left), do a small dog leg following path around and G-17 will be on your right just before the cafeteria.
