    Nutrien Ag Solutions Tumby Bay, in partnership with CareFlight, is bringing the free course to Tumby on Thursday, March 7.

    The session will build knowledge, skills and confidence to deliver lifesaving assistance and allow participants to practise the skills needed to make appropriate decisions, communicate with others at the scene and take action that could help to save a life.

    Organisers said this was beyond first aid training, this was about trauma training.

    Taught by clinical professionals, the course is a hands-on mix of theoretical and simulation-based trauma response training.

    Training includes agricultural trauma scenarios using simulation manikins, where participants work together in teams with their colleagues and learn about trauma care skills and communication at accident scenes.

    Scenario training utilises tools like CareFlight’s CrashSim which replicates a motor vehicle accident.

    The program covers the triage of patients, assessment and scene risk awareness. It also teaches terminology and procedures for an efficient and effective handover to medical personnel when they arrive on scene.

    The workshop covers: airway management procedures and skills; haemorrhage control skills; stabilisation and safe extraction of patients from a motor vehicle; motorbike helmet removal and when to remove; treatment of burn and crush injuries; patient assessment and triage; and hand-over techniques to professional medical personnel.

    The session will run at the State Emergency Service premises at 6 Excell Road, Tumby Bay, from 8am to 4pm.

    Lunch plus tea and coffee is provided – if you have dietary requirements contact the organisers to make sure they are catered for.

    If you have any questions or details for registration, contact Kathleen Sami at Nutrien Ag Solutions on 8688 2624 or kathleen.sami@nutrien.com.au.
