There are two main categories of people providing health care on vessels:
- health care professionals (doctors, nurses, paramedics)
- seafarers (Captain, senior officers) who provide medical care when a health care professional is not available
In all cases, staff providing health care at sea must have a broad set of skills and knowledge which includes e.g. acute medical emergencies, public health and infectious disease.
Our areas of expertise include:
- defining the level of skills and expertise required by your medical and/or non-medical staff, tailored to your specific needs
- providing the necessary training to acquire and maintain those skills and expertise
- recruiting the healthcare professionals to staff your vessels
What can we do for you? Here are some examples:
Is your medical staff compliant with the applicable laws and regulations (flag state, CLIA etc)? We can perform a gap analysis and provide clear advice on how to achieve full compliance.
We can provide specific training, tailored to the maritime environment, for both medical and non-medical personnel.
If you need to recruit health care professionals, we can help to source personnel, and assist in the interviewing/recruiting process.
