PSYCHOMOTOR SKILL COMPETENCY & COGNITIVE UNDERSTANDING
It is not enough to simply have certain skills. Your medical team needs to know how to appropriately apply their critical skills as part of a multi-disciplined medical team responsible for completion of critical care tasks during management of the equipment-laden athlete in the very unique athletic environment. This is very different than caring for injured persons in the ED, MVAs, or less high profile environments. The challenges presented by the unique athletic environment require very specific training.
PRACTICAL LENS APPROACH
The In 2Minutes or Less! ® curriculum is based on a very different approach. In 2Min or Less!® focuses on practical application of the psychomotor emergency response skills that are required of an efficient multi-disciplined sports medicine team. The In 2Min or Less!® program is grounded in SMC’s unique Critical Care Triangles Strategy and Primary Objectives Approach to emergency response. SMC curriculum directors look at the peer-reviewed literature and then take the information from journals and labs to the playing fields to uncover the best means of performing the latest techniques and protocols during our Situational Scenario™ development sessions. Program directors then bring this practical knowledge to bear as participants and program instructors work together to strengthen the skills and efficiency of your sports medicine team.
Unlike other educational programs, the In 2Min or Less!® Situational Scenarios™ program does not focus on a specific protocol. Rather, the program is designed to provide sports medicine team members with a unique opportunity to evaluate protocols and master critical psychomotor skills by working through specific true-to-life scenarios. The concept is to see first-hand where critical breakdowns in emergency response occur and to get the team to THINK LOGICALLY about which critical skills are most appropriate, and how best to employ critical skills during any injury scenario.
The result is a sports medicine team that is Prepared to Respond Flawlessly™ even in the most demanding environments.
