Background: primary schools are presumed to be safe havens for students in the pediatric age group.
The presence of a significant number of educators and adult personnel with the children during the day undermines the possibility of occurrence and , consequently, worsening of any health related problems. Since this age group is susceptible to physical injuriesand deterioration of chronic illnesses, primary school staff should be armed with proper knowledge and skills to provide the adequate initial first aid management and therefore prevent possible morbidity or even death. Our study was aimed to evaluate the extent of preparedness of our female primary school staff when faced with emergency cases through assessing their knowledge and practice in first aid management, and through determining their attitude towards first aid training.
