First Aid Interactive Refresher

First Aid Interactive Refresher

This online First Aid interactive Refresher course is a collection of five engaging first aid situations in which students answer a series of questions about injury prevention and first aid. This innovative tool uses simulations of everyday injuries and medical emergencies in the workplace and at home to enhance learning and understanding of first aid. Content is based on the curriculum and standards covered in Canadian and American government-approved first aid courses.

By means of film, graphics and decision trees, scenarios outline important factors – like signs, symptoms and hazards – enabling students to learn, support and test their own decision making abilities in a given emergency.
