Andrew, I'm not sure that the point here was one of
accreditation, what I think is of more relevance would
be a kind of "master class". IE presupposing you have
already done phec, basics etc. There are a lot of very
experienced people out there whose "improvisations" at
scene could be critically appraised and used to teach
those of us who have not been in these particular
scenarios, but who are none the less experienced
prehosp care providers.
I have found the most interesting "teaching" I have
had is from other guys in the pre hosp care field
sharing their "war stories".
I have no idea how this could be facilitated in an
organised standardised fashion.The list is good - but
it's no substitute for personnal interaction. What I
had thought tentatively was that cases could be worked
up by the faculty and that practical exposure to these
situations could be facilitated in a "moulage"
scenario using actors and broken up cars, etc. With
firebrigade and ambulance service all there and
fulfilling their roles. The entire "trauma" teams
performance would be assessed by an observer and the
information gleaned presented in the afternoon of the
course with the "ideal" response used as comparison.
Although the BASICs course does this fairly well, what
I would be looking for is not "and here's how you do
the basics" but more here is how it was done, here's
what you did, what is the collective opinion.
It's just an idea.
