All qualified emergency care professionals have a responsibility to continuously update their professional knowledge and skills, to benefit both themselves as well as their patients. In order to stay registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) all Basic Ambulance Assistants (BAA) and Ambulance Emergency Assistants (AEA) requires a predetermined amount of CPD points, of some must be ethical.
Our programs are designed to refresh the practitioner’s theoretical knowledge and sharpen their practical patient treatment skills, thereby assisting practitioners in delivering professional emergency care treatment. The courses cover a broad spectrum of theory ranging from anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology and treatment for medical and trauma emergencies. The practical course components, include practicing OSCE’s, patient simulations, equipment and actual medication usage protocol revision.
Absolute Health Services has accreditation to train nationally, training courses can be facilitated at our client’s premises, as long as we have 8 or more delegates to train on-site, or delegate can join one of our scheduled public course dates, which takes place at our emergency care training centres. Our Refresher courses are available in semi-correspondence options where candidates complete a workbook at their own time prior to coming to attempt the formal assessment which consists of a written test, OSCE assessments and a patient simulation.
Our CPD accreditation is through the Durban University of Technology and we are one of only two training providers listed on the HPCSA’s website as BAA and AEA Refresher providers. Our staff are all registered paramedics ranging from Basic Ambulance Assistants to Emergency Care Practitioners sharing between us many years of prehospital emergency experience both locally and internationally.
In addition to the two Refresher courses we also offer BLS for Healthcare Provider ,CPR for Professionals and the Snake Identification, Handling and Snakebite Treatment course which will all earn you CPD points. We are in the process of extending our CPD offerings for 2020 to include some exciting new courses for all levels of Paramedics!
