Why should I take this course?

This micro skills course provided by the College of Paramedics aims to further paramedics' knowledge of specialist burn injuries in order to increase confidence in managing patients with chemical, electrical, ocular, bitumen and frostbite injuries. The aetiology, specific management considerations and specialist pathways required will be expanded upon. This further understanding will provide direction for prehospital best practice in less frequently encountered burn injuries. Current guidance within the UK will be drawn upon from the British Burn Association (BBA), current evidence base and the Joint Royal Colleges Ambulance Liaison Committee (JRCALC) to direct best practice.

Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?

Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.

Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?

Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
