The course will focus on core emergency ultrasound skills covering the level 1 Ultrasound competencies. The candidates will get a lot of hands-on practical sessions before their triggered assessments and sign-off.

For HST’s

To be signed off as Level 1 competent (to be independent practitioner with ultrasound level 1 skills in EM) you would have to show evidence of both theoretical and practical training as follows:

  1. Log-book of scans carried out during the training period (electronic copies with anonymised images or paper copies)(Practical)
  2. Follow up/reflective notes on any 10 cases (anonymised) preferably with scanned images or pictorial description of scans (practical)
  3. Evidence of completion of Level 1 Ultrasound training (certificate of completion)(theoretical)
  4. Evidence of completion of CEM e-learning modules (6)(theoretical)

For those HST trainees who are still in their early years please aim to collect these prior to you attending the sign off day.
