Haiti

The education curriculum developed for Haiti includes eight modules drawn from the Center for MEDICS paramedic program. Each module will be presented to three different provider levels: ALS (Advanced Life Support) for doctors, ALS for registered nurses, and BLS (Basic Life Support) for clinical and technical workers in the hospitals.

In April 2013, the educators will present the first module, which will focus on emergency respiratory care and airway management, including practical and vent training and practical assistance training.

Future topics include the following:

    • Cardiac Emergencies, including ACLS and BLS techniques, 12 lead EKG competency, understanding equipment and implementing a plan for organization equipment.
    • Trauma Care, including assessment, bleeding control, splinting, and burn management.
    • Neurological Issues, including assessment, AMS, seizures, diabetic emergencies, and stroke.
    • Pediatric Emergencies, including PALS and NRP.
