Overview:

The first aiders are covering a sports event and are called to one of the rugby pitches where it is reported that someone has been hurt when a scrum collapsed. On arrival, the first aiders will find the patient alert by lying in the position they were in when the scrum collapsed because they have pain in their neck and everyone was a bit worried to move them. But they'd quite like to start the match again and so will be encouraging the first aiders to move patient off of the pitch. The weather is pretty bad. This scenario tests query spinal injury management and working in cold and wet conditions.

Another great scenario that tests airway management in a patient who has taken a concoction of alcohol and other recreational drugs. The first aiders are called into a cafe to a young female who is reported as very drunk. On arrival, the patient is slumped on a chair and voice responsive, occasionally vomiting. A patient's relative is also on scene and says that the patient has been drinking all day and might have taken other stuff but not really sure.

Overview:

This one is about a child who has tripped and fallen down some stairs and landed on their head and shoulder. The child's head and neck was bent back in the collision with the ground but the child only complains of pain in their shoulder because it seems much worse than the smaller pain in their neck. This scenario is designed to test the first aiders with a distracting injury from a potentially more serious one on a child (a patient group that tests different communication skills for example). The child's parent can be with them to help explain the mechanism.
