Why Your Team Needs To Take This Cosmetic Practice Emergency Course

Dr Sean Arendse and Professor Greg Goodman come together with 3 key healthcare organisations to assist in further safeguarding cosmetic practice.

Ensuring the safety and well-being of patients is key when working in aesthetics. Although you may have not yet experienced a patient who has experienced an epileptic seizure, or a cardiac emergency, being equipped with the skills to safely manage a situation like this is highly beneficial to both yourself as a clinician and the patient.

Alfred Health, in collaboration with Monash University and the Dermatology Institute of Victoria, have come together to present the Cosmetic Practice Emergency Course to assist clinicians in aesthetic practice. This bespoke program is meticulously designed to empower clinicians and support staff with the skills and knowledge required to swiftly identify and manage medical emergencies within cosmetic settings.

Why attend the Cosmetic Practice Emergency Course?

In a cosmetic practice, the ability to quickly recognise and respond to medical emergencies can make a significant difference, often before emergency responders arrive. This course offers invaluable discussion points and hands-on training, enabling participants to deliver critical interventions in pivotal moments.

From anaphylaxis to cardiac events, epileptic seizures to chemical eye injuries, the curriculum covers a diverse array of life-threatening scenarios.

Basic life support certification will also be completed as part of this program.

This comprehensive course is ideal for all clinic staff, including:

  • Experienced medical professionals seeking to enhance their emergency response skills.
  • Nurses and physician assistants looking to broaden their expertise.

The training ensures that every member of the clinic team can navigate complex emergencies with precision and poise.

Key features of the course:
