About the Course

Every year, StreetDoctors delivers life-saving first aid training to educate and empower young people at high risk of involvement in violence. 

This course on the recovery position was taken from a course specifically designed by StreetDoctors for their medical student trainers. Their experienced and dynamic presenters introduce you the recovery position and how it can be used. It is a useful skill and piece of knowledge for any healthcare worker as well as lay members of the public.
