The teaching resources include a presentation and a lesson plan. By the end of the lesson, your students will:

  1. be able to assess a first aid situation using the DR ABC method – danger, response, airway, breathing, and circulation

  2. know how to check the casualty’s responses, open their airway, and check for breathing.

Who can deliver this first aid lesson?

The lesson plans can be delivered by teachers, higher-level teaching assistants, school nurses and youth leaders who have a current first aid qualification. The first aid qualification must cover the topic you are teaching.

All the information from the resources can be found in the current edition of the First Aid Manual.
