National Simulation Centre, Mulleriyawa Base Hospital

Registration Fees : LKR. 4000.00 FOR LIFE MEMBERS


Basic Paramedicine Course          


Paramedicine is a health profession focused on assisting individuals in maintaining optimal health often following acute or sudden onset of medical or traumatic events.  The practice of paramedicine involves the application of concepts of medical care under challenging, uncontrolled, and austere conditions.


The Basic Paramedicine Course is an innovative, focused and highly interactive one day workshop and will be the first ever workshop done in Sri Lanka aiming for establishment of standard pre-hospital care system in Sri Lanka  in collaboration with Australian paramedical faculty.

Expert faculty will teach the key skills needed to assess and stabilize the critically ill patients in pre-hospital environments, leading to improved patient outcomes and survival. The aim of this one- day workshop is to provide  hands-on practical update on pre-hospital care from experts.


The course includes lectures on personal safety and security, recognition of sick patient, airway management, basic trauma management, toxicology, handling of special cases such as pregnant patients and small group hands-on training sessions with mannequins and real-life simulations.


The hands-on-training stations will be on airway management and basic trauma management in both adult and pediatrics and simulation scenarios that are designed to challenge your knowledge, decision making skills, practical skills and teamwork dynamics in a varied selection of pre-hospital simulations using a wide range of the latest pre-hospital equipment.


All simulations are based on real life challenging cases and facilitated by Dr. Sanj Fernando, Dr. Yashvi Wimalasena, Dr. Srilal de Silva, John Burning and postgraduate trainees of Emergency Medicine in Sri Lanka.


This course is aimed at paramedics, nurses, doctors and medical practitioners.
