SPHERe™ Course Feedback

Here at Prometheus we encourage feedback on our products and training courses. Following our SPHERe™ course that took place on 9-10th May 2013 we received the following email from a student which we are delighted to share.


“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for what was an excellent course that I attended at Prometheus Medical last week.

I have undertaken various emergency medical courses in the past related to my role within the Trust. However, this is the first time I have felt compelled to contact a member of the teaching faculty directly.

From the moment the course commenced and the faculty were introduced it was very clear that this course was going to be delivered by a team of Instructors who were all current in their knowledge base and were practising pre-hospital care, along with having a full understanding of the role of a Paramedic ‘in the field’. I have found on previous courses that many of the Instructors are hospital based and have never practised in the pre-hospital arena. As you will know yourself this can be extremely frustrating for candidates who are all pre-hospital based as many of the skills taught and procedures administered within a hospital environment are completely useless when trying to apply them in a dark back street at 2am with the rain running down your neck!!

It was also extremely pleasing to see that the course was not PowerPoint driven. I have also experienced such course delivery in the past where candidates are sitting looking at a projector screen for hours on end as the Instructor goes through slides 1 to 95 per session! The fact that presentations were kept to an absolute minimum and the focus was on gaining experience through observed scenarios was very refreshing and certainly contributed to the overall SPHERe experience.

From a personal perspective, my management of a pre-hospital cardiac arrest has certainly changed and I look forward to being able to utilise the skills that were taught on the course, particularly the concepts of Crew Resource Management and Team Leading an arrest.

I would be grateful if you could pass on my thanks to the other members of the course faculty. All of the Instructors on this course made me feel very welcome. At no point did I feel inadequate or uncomfortable. The feedback from the scenarios was always positive and on the occasions when things could have been managed differently, clear guidance was given with plenty of time for open discussions. This contributed greatly to me enjoying the course and gaining maximum knowledge. 

I look forward to meeting you again in the future at another event.”
