The FA Level 5 Advanced Trauma Medical Management in Football (ATMMiF) course commenced this week, with 24 participants joining course director Professor Lisa Hodgson at St. George’s Park.
The ATMMiF course, which is accredited with the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care, Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh), is the highest medical qualification provided by The FA, and is specifically designed for doctors or therapists responsible for the pre-hospital management of footballers.
A national centre for all, St. George’s Park provides the complete setting for the two-day course, which is delivered through a range of practical and theory workshops where entrants study head injury management and the FA concussion guidelines, sudden cardiac arrests in football, emergency action planning and basic and advanced life support among many other content areas.
The state-of-the-art facilities also allow for supporting demonstrations and question and answer sessions, meeting the needs of all participants on the highly practical and interactive course.
The qualification provides the skills for participants to act as a team leader in the event of a life or limb threatening injury in football.
