SRU Medical Courses

World Rugby Level 1 – First Aid in Rugby (F.A.I.R)

 

Background
World Rugby (formerly IRB) has recognised the requirement and the lack of validated pre-hospital based courses which specifically addressed the needs of collision sports, particularly rugby union. With rugby evolving into a more global sport, the physical and mental demands of the game also increases significantly. While catastrophic and life or limb threatening injuries are not common in rugby, it is essential when they do occur that the attending personnel are appropriately prepared and trained for such incidents.

The Level 1 First Aid In Rugby (F.A.I.R) course is hosted by the Singapore Rugby Union, in conjunction with World Rugby.

Course overview
The one-day course is suitable for people with little or no medical background, who wish to be trained in basic sports first aid with a concentration on rugby. These include coaches, teachers, parents, sports officials, players and others who may be asked to respond to an injured athlete at a sports event or during training. The course is conducted by local and overseas faculty with experience in medical first aid, pre-hospital immediate care and sports medicine education.
