WILDERNESS MEDICINE COURSES
Tundra Medical Resources is proud to offer wilderness medical courses delivered exclusively by Wilderness Medical Association (WMA) Canada certified instructors. This ensures that you receive standardized training that meets specific criteria and is recognized internationally. The core curriculum is designed to provide the skills and insight needed to improvise, adapt, and exercise reasonable judgment at any level of medical training. Each course listed below will provide you with the following tools, based on level of training:
Understand the challenges and limitations of working in a remote/resource challenged, patient care setting.
Explain principles of preventive care for patients and team members when faced by environmental challenges.
Perform an accurate patient assessment when access to advanced diagnostics are not available
Utilize useful medical and basic rescue equipment often available in a remote/resource challenged patient care setting.
Via case studies and in practice during patient-oriented drills, demonstrate decision making ability for treatments and evacuations in remote resource/challenged patient care settings.
Decide which medications* and equipment that might be useful and appropriate in a variety of remote/resource challenged patient care settings.
*Medication administration and some other skills may not be supported in all workplaces. Always familiarize yourself with and follow your local policies and protocols.
Wilderness Medicine differs significantly from standard first aid courses and other programs that are oriented toward the urban environment. These courses teach what to do with a medical emergency when help is miles away and calling 911 isn’t an option. We prepare students for emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments and improvised equipment.
