Striving for excellence

The SCRED is committed to the scientifically-based improvement of the quality of care provided to critically ill people from the site of the event up until the conclusion of prehospital care of the patient at the appropriate hospital or clinic.

Aus- Weiter- und FortbildungTrainings, Continuing- and Advanced Education

The SCRED provides a relevant contribution to the training, continuing- and advanced education of professionals involved in rescue, emergency and disaster medicine. In addition to the involvement of various specialists within the framework of the longitudinal curriculum of emergency medicine at the University of Basel, the Centre is an independent platform that organises courses focussing on the coordinated medial services for the management of mass casualty incidents “SFG” on behalf of the Coordinated Medical Services (KSD) among others. The focus of these recognized education modules lies in the competence to manage major events and complex situations. This also includes training for a systematic access to the medical management of persons after exposure to hazardous substances (Advanced Hazmat Life Support – AHLS).

The courses offer an important contribution to the interprofessional transfer of information and knowledge and an exchange of ideas and notions, and can foster cooperation across the borders of Switzerland.

Courses offered can include e-learning modules prior to participation. Thus providing course preparation, attendance and practical training in a blended learning method.

Successful course completion can be used to obtain credits.

To achieve this, SCRED offers a selection of basic and advanced training courses with a focus on specific subjects. The courses are primarily aimed at emergency physicians and paramedics.
