Developed by the World Health Organization, International Committee of the Red Cross and the International Federation for Emergency Medicine, the BEC Extended Modules: Conflict-Related Injuries support the delivery of quality emergency care for patients with conflict-related trauma, covering penetrating injury, blast injury and burns. These extended modules follow the BEC systematic approach to the initial assessment and management of time-sensitive critical conditions where early intervention saves lives.

Overview: Based on country requests, extended modules have been developed to supplement the BEC course. These include extended modules covering conflict trauma resulting from blast, penetrating and burn injuries. These modules are designed to support first contact providers working in conflict settings, or those who may need to manage conflict injuries. The content is meant to be used as refresher material or as a ‘just-in-time' educational resource.
Note: Review of the WHO/ICRC BEC core content or extended modules on OpenWHO will NOT allow the learner to be a ‘BEC trained provider’. To receive BEC certification, training must be done via a face-to-face training OR via the WHO Academy PLUS in-person Practical Skills Training.
Course duration: Approximately 2 hours.
Certificates: A Certificate of Achievement will be available to participants who score 80% of the total points in all graded assignments. Participants who receive a Certificate of Achievement can also download an Open Badge for this course. Click here to learn how.
