There are six uncapped players in the Ireland squad for the summer tour to North America that was named this morning. An Emerging Ireland squad has also been selected for the Tblisi Cup in Georgia.
The course is running on both days to accommodate those who may be involved in club games that weekend.
Club medical personnel are encouraged to attend to update their knowledge and skills in this area for the upcoming season and those working as part of a medical team are advised to attend together to practice skills.
Course content includes certification for the Irish Heart Foundation/American Heart Association Heartsaver AED Course and specific topics including concussion, spinal management, packaging/moving the injured player, fractures and matchday preparation.
There is an emphasis on practical tasks with skills stations and rapid practice scenarios making up most of the course.
