Training in emergency procedures for health professionals and, more generally, for citizens is a public health issue. The aim is to develop a safer living and working environment. This is part of a more general approach to risk management. Welcoming potentially seriously ill patients means accepting that they may decompensate. The health professional must therefore anticipate this risk, prepare for it and know how to trap his or her own errors.

The Certificate of Training in Emergency Care is compulsory for all health personnel in initial training registered in the table 4 of the health professions of which the Doctor of Pharmacy is part. It is delivered at the end of the training.


The pharmacist in a pharmacy is a visible and identifiable public health actor, which often makes him the first link in the chain of urgent care, a de facto actor in the permanence of care. He must therefore know how it works, alert as an informed professional, provide conservative and appropriate first aid while waiting for institutional help.
