Sports first aid is something of a speciality for us here at Lubas Medical, and so it gives us great pride to announce the launch of our brand new FASE training courses. FASE stands for First Aid for Sport and Exercise; where our Sports Trauma Management course is for medical professionals only, the FASE courses are open to all! If you want to learn the essentials of sports injury management, a FASE course may well be perfect for you.
FASE 1 is an entry-level course that covers such topics as spinal injury, concussion, broken bones, and medical emergencies like anaphylaxis and asthma. FASE 2 is a more advanced version of the course, covering everything from FASE 1 while also touching on some more advanced stuff, including defibrillation, your legal responsibilities, and the use of splints.
Who are the FASE courses for?
Here are some of the people who could benefit from attending one of our new First Aid for Sport courses:
- Parents with children who frequently engage in sporting activities/exercise
- Personal trainers who want to know what to do in an emergency
- Coaches who may encounter these injuries on the field of play
- Games/P.E. teachers who oversee sporting activities and exercises
- Stewards who work at sporting events (we recommend the more in-depth FASE 2 course for cases like this)
The First Aid for Sport and Exercise courses are already filling up, so book your place now to avoid disappointment! FASE 1 and 2 are ACPSEM-recognised to bronze and silver level, respectively, and both courses are compliant with UEFA’s minimum medical requirements.
The first FASE 1 course takes place in Cardiff on the 23rd of March – book your place now!
