Medical Emergency Action Plan

Schools and colleges have a responsibility to ensure that their facilities provide a safe environment. The requirements of this duty of care will be identified through a risk assessment and should include a clearly documented plan that outlines the actions and processes in a medical emergency.

Along with appropriate levels of first aid cover, a Medical Emergency Action Plan (MEAP) should be an integral part of the player welfare provision across all sports and recreational activities.

A MEAP should consider all those involved, including players, coaches, officials, parents and volun­teers, staff, sports trainers/first aiders and spectators. It should provide a simple, safe and systematic approach to ensure that any emergencies can be dealt with quickly and efficiently.

It is important that the MEAP is effectively communicated to staff, coaches, first aiders and any others who would be involved in the incident management during an emergency situation.
