Level 2 Standard Principles of Resuscitation
and Trauma in sport course (SPoRTS)

The responsibility of the pitch-side medical team has never been higher. Health care professionals are under more and more scrutiny in terms of skill maintenance and professional development.
 
The pitch-side medic has a duty of care to the team, but also a responsibility to update and improve their skills. We believe in an integrated approach where Health care professionals from all levels and backgrounds train and learn together and this pre-hospital course for medics who don’t deal with critical care situations every day is designed to encourage this.
 
The SPoRTS courses take advantage of extensive pre-hospital experience and are designed to provide the occasional critical care medic with the theory, skills and knowledge of safe boundaries to assess and perform immediate life saving interventions or to prepare the critically unwell sportsman for safe transfer to hospital.
 
The course is designed to help you recognise the critically ill; develop practical skills to treat them and co-ordinate a team to transfer them. That way when our skills are called upon in a critical care situation we can all be confident we are trained to a similarly high level.
