Why should I take this course?

 Following a review of skin anatomy and burn pathophysiology, this micro skills course from the College of Paramedics will demonstrate how to make an assessment of burn depth and percentage total body surface area (% TBSA). In addition to discussing the pre-hospital treatment and management for minor burns patients, some of the more common specialist treatment options will be outlined, in order that the ambulance clinician develops a sound knowledge base from which to inform their decision making.

Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?

Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.

Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?

Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
