What is MedTRiM?

MedTRiM is a proactive approach which aims to ensure that colleagues are supported following any PTE experienced at work. The aim is to address the legal, moral and ethical organisational duty of care by providing clear management strategies and offering meaningful peer group interaction and support with minimal disruption.

The philosophy of MedTRiM is to do no harm and to put trauma awareness and support at a grassroots level, rather than keeping it “in the hands of experts”. Therefore, it can be an integral part of an organisation or consortium’s development of a trauma-informed system. For consistency, throughout this course, organisation will be used as the generic descriptive term for all workplace settings.

Our Clients

We currently work with many NHS Trusts, Hospitals and Ambulance Services, training MedTRiM Practitioners, Strategic Leaders and MedTRiM Managers. In addition, we are providing continued support and mentoring as the various organisations grow their MedTRiM capability during what has been a challenging time for many staff members.

During COVID and subsequent staff availability challenges, Many Trusts have engaged with our online training programs, utilising our bespoke face-to-face and CPD consolidation sessions when they are able to do so.

Should a virtual format be required, we already have a proven and successful online, blended delivery option utilising our secure learning portal. The online learning segment of the MedTRiM course is in 3 parts :

  • The course lessons - This is the main teaching and learning content. You can download resources throughout, and there are frequent knowledge check activities.
  • The course quiz - This is a recap of key knowledge and counts towards the final accreditation.
  • The course accreditation - This involves submission of work and confirmation of learning.

The online learning is followed by a Consolidation Webinar, including practical training and role-play through our bespoke facility.

On completion of the course, delegates receive their MedTRiM Accreditation Certificates at the appropriate level and have access to additional resources and continued support and advice from our expert facilitators.

In addition to achieving MedTRiM Practitioner or MedTRiM Manager status, our MedTRiM courses are accredited on the Credit and Qualifications Framework for Wales (CQFW), on the Quality Assured Lifelong Learning Pillar of the framework (QALL). This means that they are fully accredited units which have a level and which carry credits which are equivalent to those on the regulated qualifications frameworks in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and they are fully recognised and understood across Europe because they articulate with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and to the frameworks of other countries, making them internationally recognised.

We have worked with Agored Cymru, the Welsh Awarding Body to gain this accreditation, and as a result of their inclusion in the CQFW, they meet regulatory requirements, are aligned to the respective frameworks and meet national education priorities.


In summary, we can offer -

  • MedTRiM Practitioners a Level 3 Award with 2 learning credits (approximately A level standard learning)
  • MedTRiM Managers a Level 5 Award with 4 learning credits (degree standard learning)

Qualification providers can use QALL credits for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and where appropriate for direct credit transfer i.e. transfer of that credit within and between education providers."
