CANCELLED – Immediate Care in Rugby – Level 2 (Aug 24 & 25)


Out of stock



CANCELLED – Aug 24 & 25 / 2-DAY COURSE

In rugby there is recognized risk of life threatening trauma or of medical emergency during match play or training activities. Stakeholders are in agreement that optimizing pitch side immediate trauma and medical care is a cornerstone of its injury risk management program and there is therefore a well-defined need for doctors and physiotherapists and other health professionals looking after players and teams to be personally equipped with the skills and the equipment required to enable the delivery of immediate care at the pitch side. Not only do these professionals need to be prepared for match/event days but also to work at training grounds where injuries or medical problems may occur.

The aim of this course is to enhance the knowledge and skills of field of play practitioners, standardizing their approach, assessment and delivery of care to players. Candidates experience multi-modality positive learning by an experienced faculty from the field of pre hospital care and sports medicine. Candidates will be assessed to ensure adequate transference of knowledge and skills to enable them to deliver the care required.

It is intended that as a result of this course there will be an improvement in the provision of immediate trauma and medical care to players, facilitating not only a reduction in the morbidity and mortality, but also a rewarding satisfaction to the providers of such care.

Required for MLR and International Rugby events.

All courses include a ticket to the Friday night Welcome Social, lunch (on the given course day(s)) and a Tshirt. We will request your desired Tshirt size closer to the event.
