WHO Basic Emergency Care (BEC): Approach to the Acutely Ill and Injured is an open-access training course developed by the WHO and ICRC in collaboration with the International Federation of Emergency Medicine. Syndrome-based content and skills training is intended for frontline healthcare providers managing acute illness and injury with limited resources. This two-day, in-person course will fulfill the didactic component of BEC facilitator training. After completing the course on October 25th and 26th, you will become a BEC Provisional Facilitator and you will be eligible to teach in the field alongside BEC experts to complete your BEC Instructor training.
