Education and Training
Our training programme is available to ANY medical professional working at equestrian events or with an interest in getting involved in them. The programme is not limited to MEA Members and we would encourage the distribution of these details to any medical professionals (NOT only doctors) who may find the programme of interest.
We run moulage sessions throughout the year at locations across the country.
The aim of the sessions are to:
Enable medical personnel to practice their individual trauma skills
Look at trauma in the context of the equestrian environment
Explore team dynamics
Management of the whole scenario
Discussion on enabling team practice at events attended by personnel
There is a minimum of 6 scenarios covering most eventualities in which attendees participate, lead and observe. We cover head, torso and limb injuries and discuss issues around concussion. Please note that each session is limited to 12 attendees.
Do email Gemma, firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to register for any of the sessions or have any questions.
