The Patient Assessment Module is presented as part of the traditional one (1) term emergency medical responder (EMR) course. This is the third of several modules that are included in the EMR certificate program. In this presentation the patient assessment module is recommended to be completed over a one (1) week period with additional time reserved for practical skills verification testing in a lab setting.
The following chapters will be covered within the Patient Assessment Module for Emergency Medical Responder. Students should note that this is a blended online program. All facets of the lecture, review activities, knowledge checks, and in some cases, practical skills which are filmed and uploaded into the system, are completed there and graded. There is no hands on lab session with this module.
