HLTAID006 Provide Advanced First Aid (PAFA)

Did you know that every workplace has a legal responsibility for ensuring adequate first aid provisions?  Accidents are a part of everyday life, including your place of work.  First aid is the earliest and the easiest response - even you as a bystander can assist a casualty in need.  While hundreds of people are trained in basic first aid according  to St John's only 13% of Australian businesses are first aid ready. Applying effective first aid response to accidents, injuries and illnesses, you can assist a person to a speedy recovery, or ultimately save their life.

This Course will assist you to develop your knowledge and skills in: applying advanced first aid response to preserve life; prevent further harm; promote recovery; and protect the unconscious.  You will also learn to: assess the situation for danger; manage casualties, including determining the priority of patients on the severity of their condition (Triage); coordinate first aid activities until arrival of medical assistance; apply various advanced first aid procedures, communicate essential incident details; and evaluate the incident by debriefing to improve future first aid operations, substance misuse - common drugs and alcohol, including illicit drugs.
