Who is this course for?

Is this course for me?

Emergency situations are relatively commonplace in first opinion practice.

Even if you only see an emergency every couple of months, it is an area where confidence is essential and the quick decisions made can make all the difference in the patients’ outcome.

Whether you have been in practice for a number of years, ECC is always seen to be quite challenging and ultimately lead to an overall lack in confidence for nurses.

This course has been provided by Sam to demonstrate how in this area of our role, nurses skills can be truly utilised and have an immediate impact on the patient’s survival.

This course will primarily be focussing on the most common emergencies seen in first opinion practice as well as other useful areas of emergency nursing.

To find out more on how you can build your ECC confidence in practice, take a look at this fantastic course.

    You will be taken through easy to digest bitesize chunks of learning, via a series of informative tutor video presented slides.

    Research shows, that online learning knowledge is easier to retain and absorb if video content is used rather than just audio, which is easier to just switch off from and become distracted. This way you can have a human connection to your tutor which is so important.

Realised how much I really did know which gave me great confidence but it also taught me loads of little "note book" tips to keep to hand. Really enjoyed the course. Have encouraged others in the practice to do it. Have kept a copy of the course notes at work for all to use.
