GENERAL PRACTITIONER

The ECM PHP (Emergency Centre Management-PreHospital Practitioner) course is presented by an Emergency Medicine Specialist. The course has been designed for the General Practitioner who is interested in improving their knowledge of emergency care, but doesn't practice primarily in an Emergency Centre or hospital. Many protocols and Emergency courses focus on hospital care where there is easy availability of advanced investigations and specialist support, which is often not available outside of the hospital.


The course covers the early care of major emergencies, and also focuses on the more minor acute conditions which can be managed completely in the outpatient setting. The course consists of online videos which are broken up into 20 topics. A video can be paused at any point and your progress will be tracked by the site. This will allow you to complete the course at times that suit you. The course can be completed on any device, including a cellphone. Once you have completed the 18 hours of videos you will earn 20 CPD points. There are no assignments or tests required.


Doctors who are interested in advancing their Emergency care or who are interested in completing their DipPEC can consider the ECM MP course. The ECM MP (Emergency Centre Management - Medical Practitioner) course has been designed specifically for Doctors who work in an Emergency Centre or Casualty. The focus is to equip Emergency Centre Doctors with all the knowledge and skills to manage any patient that presents to a busy Emergency Centre/Casualty. You will be trained on the specific skills and procedures needed to manage the most minor, to the most major presentations. In addition, the course has been designed to assist those who are interested in completing a Diploma in Emergency Care (DipPEC). Please note however that further study will be required beyond what is taught in the course, but it will assist you in your preparations.


The ECM MP course consists of 30 topics which can be watched on any device. Your progress will be tracked by the site so a video can be paused at any point and continued from where you left off. On completion of each section you will be required to complete 5 MCQs before continuing on to the next topic. Once you have completed all the topics and the MCQs you will have earned 30 CPD points.
