Itinerary:
Want to learn or brush up on your wilderness first aid skills? These sessions are intended to help club members retain and solidify the skills they have gained in a wilderness first aid (or equivalent course). Each session will focus on a specific first aid concern (e.g. musculoskeletal injuries, wound management, etc), focusing primarily on everyday issues encountered on club trips. Participants of this clinic will receive a poll (for those signed up before Dec. 4th) as to what first aid concern we will focus on for that evening. One person will be lost and injured, while the rest will team up and "respond" to the incident. We will have numerous scenarios of varying difficulty on each session to practice each of these skills thoroughly. In addition, an overview of the Patient Assessment System will be performed at the beginning of each session to allow all participants to participate regardless of experience on the scenarios. If you have any questions about the practice session,please contact Zack via email: zachary.wentz@gmail.com
