Basic First Aid: How to Be an Everyday Hero

Basic First Aid: How to Be an Everyday Hero

University of Glasgow

Overview

First aid is an essential set of skills that anyone can learn and use. Each of us is highly likely to come across a situation in which first aid is required — this might be at work, at home, or out in public. Critical situations include finding an unconscious person, encountering someone bleeding, or witnessing someone having a heart attack.

The University of Glasgow crafted this short course as an introduction to First Aid. Created by Leah Marks, a senior lecturer in Medical Genetics at the University of Glasgow in conjunction with two fourth-year medical students, the course aims to give people the confidence to help in an emergency.

It is a building block that allows participants to get an overview of the discipline before potentially taking a more detailed course with the Red Cross or other training providers.
