In an area of conflict, access to medical equipment and relevantly trained personnel can be limited. SafeLane works with its clients and utilises its trainers’ own field experiences to create relevant medical training courses that save lives. 

The benefits of applying personal field experience to the development of relevant medical training courses

Although theory is essential for any medical training, when it comes to combat trauma care (CTC) field experience is paramount for developing solutions that will support battlefield survival in the event of injury.

This experience is invaluable when it comes to creating bespoke courses, answering questions, and staying up to date with the threat landscape.                  

In addition to enhancing the quality of the courses, the trainers’ battlefield exposure means they have empathy for the reality troops face on the ground. This understanding builds trust and strengthens the trainer-student relationships.

Sharing life-saving knowledge

In Somalia, the CTC courses are delivered with train the trainer courses to provide capacity building services.  

Once the training is complete, the trainees in the forward operating bases (FOBs) are then qualified to educate those people operational in locations where SafeLane isn’t currently present.

This means that this crucial information can be as widely disseminated as possible, sharing knowledge that has the power to save lives.

SafeLane also has the capability to provide further training, including traction splints and IV cannulation, depending on the requirements of different teams.

SafeLane’s train the trainer course enables course recipients to empower local communities with lifesaving skills.
