  4. Supply your own patient role player for the practice scenarios and splinting scenarios in the course.

Patient scenario card instructions are written at a high school reading level so plan your patient recruiting accordingly. See COVID-19 Considerations paragraph below.
  5. Schedule and successfully complete a virtual Proctored Skills Assessment


  1. Google Drive Requirements. A Google Drive Folder will be assigned to you. You will use this folder to upload the images and documents that are required for your certification. The email you used to register for the course is the email that the link to the Google Drive Folder will be sent to you.


 

COVID-19 Considerations

If you do not have a person you are living with who can perform the role of a patient, you may consider doing the following:

  • Email the Scenario Practice Cards to a friend who can perform the role of the patient. Use a video conference app that will allow you to perform a patient exam by giving the patient commands and asking questions. In response to your questions and commands the patient will read information provided to them on the Scenario Practice Card. Examples: “Open your mouth and say AHH. Do I see anything inside your mouth?” “I am palpating your left forearm. Do you feed pain?” “I am taking your pulse. What is your heart rate?” You can practice performing an entire patient assessment and complete a SOAP Note using this method.
  • Improvise a leg and arm using materials found around the home such as a pool noodle, foam roller or shirt/pair of jeans and stuffed with towels as filler material. Construct a splint around the improvised limb to the specifications in Paragraph 3.c below.

If you are using a fabricated limb, then take a picture of the splint object.
  10. You are not required to use a SAM Splint as the rigid element. However, you must include a picture of the rigid element so the proctor can see that it is in fact an acceptable rigid element.

  5. Skills assessments are conducted on Zoom.us and KAHOOT.com. You are responsible for ensuring your technology works on Zoom and KAHOOT prior to attending the Skills Session. You should sign up for a free Zoom account and test Zoom with another person who has a Zoom account. Sign up for a free KAHOOT account prior to the Skills Session. We will not be able to troubleshoot any issues you are experiencing. If you are unable to successfully connect to Zoom during your scheduled Skills Session, you will not graduate and need to reschedule your Skills Assessment.

  7. Enable video throughout the entire session. If your video is not working the entire session you will not graduate and need to reschedule your Skills Assessment.
  8. Enable audio throughout the entire session. If your audio is not working the entire session you will not graduate and need to reschedule your Skills Assessment.

  10. How the Skills Assessment Works
  11. Using KAHOOT and Zoom, we have “gamified” the skills assessment. The purpose of the virtual skills assessment is to confirm that the student has attained a level of competency to follow the Primary and Secondary Patient Assessment and can successfully diagnose a patient who requires evacuation to defininative medical care.
  12. You are allowed to use your notes, textbook and Wilderness First Aid Made Easy algorithms during the skills assessment.
  13. You will complete three scenarios. One practice scenario that will allow you to acclimate to the virtual skills assessment environment. Two graded scenarios that consist of the proctor providing you a backstory on a patient that is experiencing an injury, illness or both. You will be required to demonstrate mastery by responding to questions and cues displayed on KAHOOT. You will be required to respond correctly to 80% of the questions and cues. 
  14. You will begin the patient assessment by talking to the patient using chat on Zoom
  15. KAHOOT will display a series of questions that you will respond to with the best answer. You will ask the patient questions
  16. Cancellations. You may cancel or reschedule a proctored skills session up to 24 hours prior to the skills session without penalty. Cancelling and or rescheduling a proctor skills session with less than 24 hours notice will require the student to pay an additional $50 to reschedule another Proctored Skills Assessment Session.
