Sport Physiotherapy Canada First Responder Course
Jenny Dickson and Amanda Ford participated in a Certified First Responder course hosted by SPC in Dartmouth, N.S, instructed by members of the Canadian Red Cross.
A certified first responder is someone who has completed a course and received certification in providing pre-hospital care for medical emergencies. They have more skill than someone with basic first aid but they are not a substitute for advanced medical care.
The course covered CPR, automated external defibrillator usage, spinal and bone fracture immobilization, oxygen as well as advanced first aid.
