Immediate Care in Sport Course
Photo: RFU Archive
While catastrophic injuries are not common in rugby, it is essential that when they do occur, the medical teams responsible are appropriately prepared and trained for such an incident. This requirement and the lack of courses which specifically address the needs of rugby union led to the development of the Rugby Football Union/Premier Rugby Immediate Care in Sport Course (ICIS).
This two day course is a rugby union specific course that will address the immediate care training needs of both doctors and physiotherapists working within rugby.
The 2013/14 course dates and venues are as follows. To book a place on any of these course use the following ICIS application form (MS Word DOC 33kB).
Once booked on to a course you will be provided with access to icis.rfu.com, an interactive learning module that supports the programme. The interactive learning module is an essential part of the preparation for the ICIS course, where enrolled candidates must work through and complete all the chapters and questions 48 hours prior to attending the face-to-face training.
Further information, including details of exemptions and course retakes can be found in the ICIS course summary (MS Word DOC 167kB).
