Immediate Care in Rugby

The Level 2 Immediate Care in Rugby Course (ICIR) is recognised by World Rugby as the minimum medical standard for all elite pitch-side practitioners (doctors, physios, nurses, paramedics) to work in elite rugby. It is also run for medical staff working in club and school rugby. The Level 2 ICIR is aimed at providing health care and allied health care professionals working in rugby the ability to assess, stabilise and package for removal to a safe area awaiting the arrival of advanced care provision.

The course is 2-day, competency-based accreditation course for doctors and healthcare professionals, preparing them to provide optimal pitch side immediate trauma and medical care for players by standardising their approach, assessment and delivery of care.

The course is available for healthcare practitioners who are appropriately qualified and registered with AHPRA as a doctor, physio, nurse, or paramedic.

For those involved in Rugby (either with a team or match day) the cost for a Level 2 course will be $385 (including GST). For those not involved in Rugby the cost for a Level 2 is $1100 (including GST).
