Medicine in Remote Areas Course Level 3

About The Course

The Polaris Medicine in Remote Areas Course has been developed to provide delegates who already have experience in Pre-Hospital Care with the added skills and knowledge to be able to deal with casualties in a remote environment. The course focuses on stabilisation of the casualty utilising knowledge and skills for management of serious incidents with the expectation of longer term management of the casualty at the scene.  It is designed to provide remote medical treatment for those operating in areas such as the oil/gas industry, the media industry, expedition and exploration personnel, disaster relief and humanitarian organisations, mountain rescue, and search and rescue personnel.
