The course is designed for professionals working in urgent or non-scheduled care. This maybe a stand-alone type 3 emergency department, urgent care centre, out-of-hours or same-day primary care access hub. It can just as easily be a GP working in a remote region or a medical team supporting other pursuits such as mountain medicine, expedition medicine and medicine relating to extreme sports.
Urgent care, by its very nature, can be daunting as it is sometimes difficult to differentiate between the urgent patient and the emergency patient until they are treated. Therefore, the healthcare professional working in urgent care should be able to deal with urgent care needs and enhance forward care by starting pathways for the emergency patient.
