Ambulance medics undergo training in Dubai.

The trainees passed all the theoretical tests after attending the workshops, which means they are eligible to be granted international licence.

Dubai - As many as 290 medics recently underwent extensive theoretical tests on the content and principles of the updated version of the Clinical Practical Guideline (CPC). CPC contains the medical measures a medic should follow when he/she attends the patient until being handed over to the hospital.

CPG has been issued by the Irish Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC), the exclusive partner of Dubai Corporation for Ambulance services in the Middle East.

The trainees passed all the theoretical tests after attending the workshops, which means they are eligible to be granted international licence. The new updates were approved as per the agreement with PHECC.

Saeeda Butti, head of the ambulance services organising section said the corporation was keen on keeping abreast with the latest internationally applicable and endorsed medical developments as its main objective is to save lives, coupled with its vision which is internationally organised ambulance service as well as the work system of PHECC.

Meanwhile, head of the vocational section, Marwan Anbar said the corporation has completed the graduation of five new ambulance van drivers who will join the corporation's sophisticated and well-equipped fleet.

The new drivers attended a 15-day training course including among other things the skills of driving the ambulance van, first aid and behavioural skills, customer service and effective contact as part of a taskforce to work under pressure. The course also includes health and occupational safety. -salah@khaleejtimes.com
