The Critical Care Advanced Transfer Training course is aimed at all those involved with the transport of critically ill patients including doctors, nurses, ODPs, paramedics and ambulance/emergency technicians.
The Intensive Care Society's "Guidelines for the transport of the critically ill adult ( 3rd Edition 2011)" state "All staff potentially involved in the transport of critically ill patients should receive appropriate training in transfer medicine, and have the opportunity to gain experience in a supernumerary capacity" [11.7.1] and "All staff involved in transfers must be able to demonstrate the range of competencies appropriate to their role." [11.7.2]. The CCATT course covers both of these stipulations.
Transporting critically ill patients is a challenging, high-risk situation that requires the right team, with the right training to ensure these risks are managed appropriately and to perform a safe and effective transfer. All surgery and anaesthesia comes with a risk and when patients deteriorate do your staff have the knowledge to effectively assess and stabilise a critically ill patient and perform a safe transfer?
The course provides the most advanced up to date transfer training available in the UK. This intensive one-day course will provide medical personnel with the skills and knowledge needed to make critical care transfer as safe and efficient as possible, improving outcomes and comfort for the patient.
