IM Injections for PCP Paramedics Classroom Session

 

Recently the EMALB approved Creative Paramedical Education’s IM Injection course for the removal of all IM restrictions.

Upon completion, PCP paramedics can remove their current IM Injection restrictions on their license. This will allow them to follow BCAS Treatment Guidelines and administer Epinephrine according to the latest American Heart Association recommendations. Currently when faced with severe Anaphylactic shock, PCP paramedics may only administer Epinephrine by the subcutaneous route which delays the onset of the drugs action. The EMA Licensing Board has approved this course for 5 CE Credits. This course consists of a short pre-read and a 4 hour classroom session.

There are no currently scheduled classroom sessions. Please contact us if you are interested in arranging a classroom session.

Personal Protection for your Brain Classroom Session

Personal Protection for your Brain is a unique 10 credit program designed for all Paramedics. It consists of a short pre-read and a slideshow presentation containing useful links and media files. In the pre-read you will learn how chronic stress changes our resistance to disease and pre-disposes us to severe psychological injury. You will also learn how to prevent injury and disease.

New research in resiliency is discussed as well as best practices in workplace management.

Most important of all, you will learn how to keep your workplace safe after a Critical Incident. You will understand why we cease to function safely after exposure to a critical event, and how to immediately care for those affected. Early interventions by a skilled facilitator may limit the damage of a critical incident, but it is more complicated than we initially thought. Furthermore, there are critical steps to take in the days and weeks after the incident to limit the risk of injury.

There are many emerging therapies to treat Acute Stress Reaction and PTSD and we will look at some of the most up to date information available. This manual is written for all first responders and uses case studies to explore important concepts directly relating to psychological injury. The British Columbia EMA Licensing Board has assigned 10 CE credits for completion.

The classroom sessions attract between 4 and 8 CE credits and can be tailored to your organization’s needs. This session builds on the themes presented in the book. It also workshops strategies for wellness, team building and resiliency.
