emergency paediatrics workshop

Rural and remote general practitioners are commonly faced with a number of medical scenarios which requires them to be multi-skilled. Rural and remote general practitioners must also learn to work with often limited support, supplies and equipment, particularly in a town without a hospital. Furthermore, paediatric care can be very challenging and unpredictable.

The aim of the workshop is to provide rural doctors with cross domain, team based learning opportunities. The workshop will use a variety of teaching methods such as interactive lectures and procedural skills stations related to Paediatrics.
