5. Emergency Response in Adventure Therapy

In both clinical and adventure pursuits, we have a central responsibility to be prepared to assist our clients in emergency situations. Our legal duty of care also dictates that we plan ahead and prepare for responding to medical and clinical emergencies that may occur while engaged in adventure activities. This training will cover aspects of emergency response including reviewing our duty of care, options for medical training for providers, and development of emergency action plans.
