PARA-2001Advanced Patient Care Simulation Level 2
More Information

This course provides individual and small group instruction, practice opportunities and evaluation for the Advanced Care Paramedic student to obtain the confidence and skills integration essential to paramedic practice in scheduled lab sessions. The instructional aspect of the course will provide demonstrations and applications of equipment, procedures and a variety of scenarios to illustrate a broad range of incidents that a paramedic might encounter. The skills are introduced didactically within other ACP level courses and integrated in the scenario based simulated patient contact experiences under lab facilitator supervision in a small group or individual training environment. Advanced Care Paramedics in practice will be able to gather patient information, assess the patient's condition and initiate necessary medical interventions in a fluid, integrated and timely manner. The team approach to application of skills will be covered, practiced and evaluated prior to the student starting their Practicum and Clinical rotations where they must perform as a team leader and member of a Paramedic team. Completing the APCS course is a requirement to attend the Clinical and Practicum rotation.
