Advanced Care Paramedic Upgrading Foundations II


Course Description

This course will build on the foundational concepts for the Advanced Care Paramedic (ACP) introduced in ACPU 1100, and focuses on assessment and management techniques related to emergency care for the medical patient. Topics covered will include a review of microbiology and pathophysiology, an overview of body systems, and medical emergencies, behavioural and psychiatric emergencies, selected other medical emergencies, palliative care, loss, death, and grief. This course emphasizes the application of pathophysiological concepts to the care of the medical patient. Simulated patient presentations will increase in both complexities and the expectations for the application of clinical reasoning.
