Emergency Procedures
By: DConline

Course Description

This 12.5-hour course will provide the Doctor of Chiropractic with current information concerning the evaluation and management of serious spinal and other physical injuries and acute illnesses requiring urgent intervention in the athletic setting. The field of prehospital emergency medical care at an athletic event is continuing to evolve. The reality of life and death decisions can be encountered at a moment's notice in the sporting arena. Doctors of chiropractic who are interested in providing sports chiropractic services outside the typical clinical setting must develop a far more sophisticated approach outside the office setting to successfully manage serious injury and illness. The public expects the D.C. working an athletic event to work side by side with other health care professionals to help deliver professional prehospital emergency medical care. This course is designed to help the new doctor of chiropractic gain the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to be a competent, productive, and valuable member of the emergency medical services team at an athletic event. The course emphasizes and utilizes a lecture format followed by hands-on-learnings that build upon the previous emergency procedure task to assist in developing both the didactic and psychomotor skills required to meet the standard of care in the management of emergent illness and injury in the sporting arena. The presentation is designed to assist the doctor of chiropractic to manage emergent trauma in a setting outside the office.
