ASSISTING THE CLINICIAN TRAINING
In early February this year, our Community Engagement & Training Team in Oxfordshire held a training session at Oxford City Resource Centre for local community first responders.
The volunteer CFRs were trained on a theme of ‘assisting the clinician’. All the clinical kit was available for CFRs to look at and become confident in its use so they can help at cardiac arrests and be part of the circle of life treatment plan.
It was an enjoyable evening and there was a lot of positive reaction and comments from frontline paramedics and staff on station too.
No previous clinical or medical experience is necessary to become a volunteer community first responder as we’ll provide you with all the initial, and ongoing, training you’ll need. Find out more about the CFR role here.
