This year we are hosting a Wilderness First Aid course with Wilderness Medical Associates. For any outdoors enthusiast having these skills could prove essential. This course is recommended as a prerequisite to taking your Paddle Canada Level 2 skills course.

Course Content

The expected target audience is seasonal outdoor group leaders and those involved in personal recreational wilderness trips. The course content meets the anticipated medical needs of those communities.

Course Topics

Patient Assessment System; CPR; Circulatory System; Nervous System; Respiratory System; Fractures, Stable Injuries; Splints 1-Extremities; Hypothermia; Hyperthermia and Heat Illness; Near Drowning; Lightning Injuries; Wounds and Burns; Anaphylaxis; Lifting, Moving Extrication; Patient Carries; Backcountry Medicine

Customization

Patient assessment drills and simulations will be specific to the group, the environment, and the context of operations or the activities performed in the field.

Given the short duration of this course, emphasis is placed on hands-on activities, including PAS drills as a major learning tool as opposed to long lectures.

Your Level one course was amazing. The demonstrations were clear and concise. Your feedback or coaching was very helpful. You both answered my many questions with clarity and patience.
