Training for Emergency Care Professionals

 Training for Emergency Care Professionals is one of the important things.

The project helps to train Laos rescue team members. Training is divided in 3 groups which are dispatchers, prehospital care providers, and emergency doctors and nurses.

1. Training for Dispatchers


In Laos, it is desirable to further strengthen the EMS system, quickly and effectively operate ambulances, and transport the patients to the hospitals within a shorter timeframe. To achieve these goals, it is essential to have an efficient command and control system. However, each rescue team presently has a different line of command and control and, as a result, the prehospital time is prolonged and the prehospital care provided may not be adequate, especially for severe patients. For this reason, in this project, we will establish a CCC at Mittaphab Hospital (including training for dispatchers) and integrate the command control functions of all rescue teams.

Training Goals

1) Training for Dispatchers

 - Acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to become a qualified dispatcher.

2) Training of Trainers (TOT)

 - Acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to train dispatchers and develop human resources who will contribute to the development of the command & control system in Laos.

2. Training for Prehospital Care Providers


Road traffic injury is a significant public concern in Laos. Appropriate evaluation and care are required from a prehospital setting to improve the outcomes of trauma caused by road traffic injuries. However, there is little chance for rescue teams recieve standard prehospital care education. As part of the SAFER Project, we will introduce a basic training program (“Rescue Basic”) to standardize the evaluation and provision of trauma care by rescue members in a prehospital setting.

Training Goals

1)      Training for Prehospital Care Providers (“Rescue Basic”)

  Acquire the necessary attitude, knowledge, and skills as a prehospital care provider.

2)      Training of Trainers (TOT)

     Acquire necessary facilitation skills as a trainer in the “Rescue Basic”course.

3. Training for Emergency Doctors and Nurses


Today, the knowledge and skills in trauma care are advancing rapidly, and the experience of studying in an international environment toward the practice of world-wide standard on trauma care is extremely important. To improve the quality of trauma care in Laos, young Lao doctors and nurses, who are with high ethical standards and a sense of mission to improve the outcome of trauma patients in Laos will be dispatched to Khon Kaen University (KKU), Thailand.

Training goals

– Acquire the attitudes, knowledge, and skills, which are essential to start the necessary treatment or resuscitation immediately after the trauma patient arrival at the emergency department.

– Acquire the attitude, knowledge, and skills of running Emergency Medical Service (EMS) system and achieve the emergency transportation with high-quality prehospital care activities for the trauma patient right after traffic crashes.
