Rem Workshop Blog

The Health Workforce professional development calendar for 2021 kicked off in February with our first event, Rural Emergency Medicine. Our first workshop saw 19 delegates venture from all areas and organisations, some as far north as Cairns, Atherton and Mossman.

The two-and-a-half-day workshop, led by Emergency Physician, Dr Nigel Moore, provided delegates with the skills necessary to identify appropriate management techniques for patient care in every-day emergencies in rural and remote practices. Delegates obtained hands-on experience in airway management, orthopaedics, obstetrics, trauma and paediatric skill sessions, ensuring that they would be able to determine a relevant treatment plan in a rural setting.

“Excellent course – it should be on the list of every rural doctor to attend!”

“Great experience and update with upskilling for emergency practice in rural Australia.”

“Great course. Excellent experienced presenters, highly recommended to all rural practitioners.”

Should you wish to upskill and further your knowledge for rural practice, our next professional development workshop is Emergency Paediatrics on 15 – 16 May on the Gold Coast. Registrations are still open.
