We have now developed a new course to support staff when dealing with the casualty following safe removal of the ligature. First Aid After Ligature training has been developed by our team including our clinical lead who has 30 years experience as a state registered paramedic.
This course provides delegate with the skills and knowledge to recognise ligature injuries and treat the casualty immediately until professional help arrives.Info & Booking Enquiry

Recommendation on Re-Training
It is recognised that the use of ligature cutters and first aid after ligature are emergency procedures which may or may not be used on a regular basis. The frequency which individuals use the procedure will have an effect on their level of skill and confidence. It is recommended therefore that individuals attend a refresher course within two years.
