ELITE SPORTS EMERGENCY
Sports Medicine Concepts has programming developed to meet the specific needs of professional team medical, collegiate team medical, national and international organizations, outreach providers, and hospitals.
SMC’s In 2Min or Less!® Philosophy
The AHA’s Chain of Survival says that delivery of critical care within 4min of an accident significantly improves outcomes. That is fine for the lay rescue, but as medical providers working in the athletic environment, we have a few distinct advantages.
First, if an accident is going to happen, we know where it is going to happen; in the confines of the athletic venue.
Second, we know who it is going to happen to; anyone of the athletes, coaches, or officials within the venue.
Three, we know when it is going to happen; within the course of events. And four, we have a good idea what is going to happen; every sport has injury trends and mechanisms that are more common within.
Armed with this knowledge SMC holds that we should all be prepared for a |FLAWLESS| response within 2 min! When we train to provide |FLAWLESS| response within 2Min, we have another 2Min to deal with response issues that inevitably surface during the organized chaos that is emergency response and still hit the vital 4Min Chain of Survival benchmark associated with improved outcomes.
About SMC Training
All SMC training programs offer interdisciplinary training that is outcome driven. Programs include instructor-led demonstrations, psychomotor skills practice, instructor facilitated peer debriefing, and advanced simulation techniques to train medical teams to meet critical care benchmarks that are proven to affect outcomes. Our proven process is the direct result of our on-going systematic review and pragmatic application of evidence-based principles at our elite sports emergency care training facility in Avon, NY.
Every SMC program utilizes SMC’s advanced Simulation Experience (SimEx®) SMC’s SimEx® features hi-fi patient simulators, proprietary injury scenarios, proven collaborative team debriefing strategies and years of experience producing true-to-life experiences to ensure that all medical teams and participants are prepared with an emergency action plan that is demonstrated to improve outcomes.
Meeting your Specific Training Objectives is
