This course would be useful to Patriots who have not had much experience with Outdoor Skills yet, but it would be a great training opportunity for new leaders, as well.

Case Studies in Wilderness Medicine

Think you’re pretty current on your outdoors emergency and first aid training? Looking for a way to see just how much your girls have really learned? Check out the Case Studies collection from the NOLS Wilderness Medicine Institute!

Provided for people considering training in a variety of Wilderness Medicine certifications, each case study provides a real life scenario and relevant patient assessment data, then asks the reader to arrive at a likely diagnosis and create a treatment plan. This would be very well suited for discussion with a small group of Pioneer/Patriot girls, or as an extension activity for adult leader training, too.
