- Category: upcoming courses
Status: HPCSA PBEC Accreditation Pending
In August 2018 the Professional Board for Emergency Care (PBEC) released a communication to all emergency care providers that the previously communicated draft Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) and related capabilities and medications have been adopted (with certain amendments) by the Professional Board for Emergency Care (PBEC) for use and implementation by all registered emergency care providers. Additionally, they informed all providers that it was the responsibility of all registered persons to:
a. familiarize themselves and;
b. undergo learning/training activities related to the contents of the document. In addition to familiarization, it is important that as far as possible, and where relevant, the related clinical practice guideline is used during all clinical encounters.
Where not applicable, all reasonable, locally contextual standards of care apply to clinical encounters. The new deadline given for the adoption of the revised list of capabilities and medications by registered persons is currently to be determined.
The course will be presented in an online fashion. Student will have access to video performance of the applicable skills, PowerPoint presentations and PDF literature. There are 5 modules in this course, each ending with a module examination. The enrolled students will have to sign off one skill to successfully transition into the new ECP Qualification. This can be done at one of the PHEC Skill Sign-Off Sites nationwide. To become a Skill Sign-Off Site, apply here.
