This specially designed programme has been adapted from the HSE Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course to meet the needs of people who work within a school setting. The syllabus includes all content from the 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work course and includes additional subjects likely to be faced by first aiders working within a school.
The core content covers the basic essentials required to provide emergency care to a patient including:
The ability to act safely and effectively when an accident or emergency occurs.
The treatment and priorities of care for an unconscious patient.
The recognition and treatment of a person in seizure.
The recognition of cardiac arrest and delivery of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
The ability to recognise and safely treat a patient who is choking.
The ability to safely and promptly treat a patient who is bleeding.
The keeping of simple records following an accident at work.
Additional subjects make the course more relevant than the standalone EFAW course and include:
Resuscitation and Choking for Children
