The First Aid Scenario Library does not aim to give any first aid or clinical advice. The treatment suggestions given in scenarios are provided by users and are not routinely checked by the Scenario Library. Users of the Scenario Library should therefore consider their own clinical guidelines and local policies as to the appropriate treatment rather than taking the suggestion as necessarily correct. Similarly, whilst we endeavor to keep the first aid content in the training idea articles accurate, we cannot guarantee it's accuracy and you should check the information against the current clinical and best practice guidelines for your organisation. The creators of the Scenario Library have created the library in their spare time and so may take a little more time to moderate scenarios or respond to reports than a commercial company would - please have patience with us because we will be working as quickly as we can.

Terms and Conditions

By submitting a scenario, you are providing the scenario to be freely used by the Scenario Library and any users of the Scenario Library for whichever purpose they choose to use it for. You are declaring that the scenario does not contain any material that will be considered unsuitable to be published freely on the internet for all ages (for example, inappropriate language, written abuse of any people group or religion...). The Scenario Library will not publish any scenario that is deemed unsuitable. You are declaring that to the best of your knowledge, the clinical information and suggested treatment is accurate. By clicking submit, you are also confirming that you are not simply advertising. The Scenario Library reserve the right to moderate and edit the scenario that you submit as they see fit.
