I’m a emergency doctor from the Netherlands with more than 20 years of experience in the Emergency department, also in ambulance and in medical teaching. I offer to teach a 1 day first aid course ‘anywhere’ in Portugal for groups of 6-10 people.

Course materials
You will need to watch 1.5h of video material before the course.
You will receive a pdf of the book ‘When there is no doctor’ after the course.

During the course I use some improvised materials:
1. to give you the best hands on experience
2. so you know how to improvise when you don’t have the materials with you
3. because a resuscitation mannequin is not available to me in Portugal (see picture below)
