A First Aid Responder may be a healthcare practitioner or a member of the public who has undertaken the education and training of a First Aid Response course incorporating the Cardiac First Response (CFR) standard.
In addition to CFR skills, the First Aid Responder possesses defined practical skills in the further management of a patient who has become
suddenly ill or injured pitch side, in the pre-hospital environment until the arrival of emergency medical services (EMS).
The First Aid Responder can assess and manage these
patients in accordance with PHECC Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs). The First Aid Response Standard adopts a uniform approach to interacting with patients and other emergency medical services in the pre-hospital setting.
