Assessment Conditions for HLTAMB014 Transport Non-emergency Patients Under Operational Conditions

Skills must be demonstrated in an operational vehicle used for the transport of non-emergency patients. This may be in the workplace or in a simulated environment on 3 separate occasions. Driving skills must have been demonstrated at least once using simulation before any demonstration in the workplace.

Assessment must ensure the use of:

– suitable facilities, resources, and equipment as per local governing body including:

– transport vehicle (emergency or non-emergency)

– communication protocols, devices, and equipment used in emergency vehicles

– modelling of industry operating conditions, including access to real people when using simulations and scenarios to demonstrate transporting non-emergency patients.

A non-emergency patient is defined as an individual who requires transport, but may not require active treatment by a clinician while en route to a receiving facility (i.e., hospital) – simulation.
