Emergency Care Training

EMK Foundation Training programs are designed by local emergency care experts to enable the health workforce to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to respond with confidence to emergency situations and to deliver safe, evidence-based quality emergency care in any setting. Our programs encourage candidates to apply the knowledge and skills learnt within the context of the policies of the employing health service and within each individual’s own scope of practice. The programs are designed to meet the learning needs of health workforce working in emergency care settings (Community Health Workers (CHWs/CHVs), Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), Nurses, Clinical Officers and Medical Officers) who may be required to provide emergency care to the critically ill or injured patient.
