PUAEME005 – PROVIDE PAIN MANAGEMENT

PUAEME005 – PROVIDE PAIN MANAGEMENT

COURSE SUMMARY

PUAEME005 – Provide Pain Management will allow you to develop skills and knowledge and most importantly, confidence, to administer restricted analgesic to provide pain management as part of a medically supervised first responder organisation. It includes identifying the need for analgesia, accessing, preparing and administering restricted pain relief such as analgesics and aspirin according to medically endorsed protocols, performing casualty handovers and completing analgesic use requirements.

Providing pain management requires instruction and practical training.  This is especially true where it relates to storing, accessing, preparing and administering restricted analgesic drugs.  As with any training, it is more useful if training occurs before being confronted with an actual real-life situation.

Licensing requirements for the storage and administration of drugs may apply depending on organisation, type of drug, state/territory, etc

This unit is typically relevant for and undertaken by personnel from emergency services and/or volunteer organisation’s or organisation’s that provide a medically supervised first aid response.

**Please note that State/Territory licensing procedures apply for the storage and administration of these drugs**
