Dear Providers,
 
FPHC is pleased to announce that the Foundation Material For Immediate Care* has arrived and is available for you to purchase in hard copy or as an e-manual. 

What’s new:  Many organisations provide training for responders starting off on their prehospital careers and on-going continued professional development. This manual has been designed to provide the foundation material and additional references for their training or on-going study. 

This latest edition has taken in to account many well recognised sources of high-quality clinical reference points and best practice, for example, the British Thoracic Society, Joint Royal Colleges Ambulance Liaison Committee and UK Resuscitation Council guidelines to name a few. In addition, it includes, where appropriate, extracts from consensus statements issued by The Faculty of Prehospital Care. 

In addition to a major review and enhancement of the of the whole foundation material, new sections have been included as below.

There are additional sections which have been included that are designed to enable the responder to assist and/or support others in the prehospital team with these skills. Their inclusion also aims to enhance the learners understanding of the role and capability of the specialist in prehospital emergency medicine. The FPHC also recognises that there are responders working at level A to D in prehospital care who may have the operational need to possess some of these enhanced skills (e.g those working in remote environments). For organisations providing the governance system, the Foundation Material can be used as reference for this type of remote/enhanced activity.
