Apart from professional information, the importance of working as a team was emphasized and the students also performed emergency rescue simulations in teams.
Emergency rescue simulations were carried out in natural environments
Students who walk to Bağlıköy forest area from EUL with their instructors, made warm-up movements at the forest and get ready for all kinds of physical education and training. Scenarios were created with the first aid materials brought by the students after the preparation, and emergency relief simulations were carried out in natural environments such as hills, forests and terrain.
Course instructor Assist. Prof. Dr. Suphi Türkmen taught students how to use their bodies and powers correctly under different physical conditions and First and Emergency aid specialist Assist. Prof. Dr. Hacer Gönül Demir informed the students about first aid and patient handling techniques.
In the event which was multidisciplinary, students have had the opportunity to practice first aid techniques, physical education and team work together. Practical lessons and the organization of activities that provide socialization of the students are very important for the professional development and with the stimulation events they have the opportunity to experience their knowledge in real-life situations
