Far From Help – FFH – is taught by expedition doctors and is WMT’s Explorer in-depth foundation course for non-medics. Content includes treating common expedition injuries, illnesses, environmental medicine and using prescription medicines safely and legally. On completion, participants can obtain a useful range of medicines such as antibiotics, altitude drugs and pain killers. FFH training may enable you to resolve an injury, infection or illness condition in the field and make your patient more comfortable by the control of pain, sickness and fever.
End of course exam. 2-year certification.
FFH is a demanding course superior to any “expedition first aid” course out there. (Consider the 4-day Advanced Medicine course if you also want to learn invasive techniques such as stapling wounds and giving injections.)
