Emergencies in General Practice was designed in Canberra appreciating that Medical and Nursing Staff working in Primary Care can often be faced with critically ill patients.
This one day course is designed to teach advanced life support techniques to those who work solely in general practice or split their time between community and hospital practice.
Candidates will be taught Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support and taken through 8 medical emergency simulations.
Each simulation scenario will begin in the primary care setting, progress through transport to hospital and culminate in Emergency Department management.
Pre-reading will be provided covering the pathologies of each scenario and post simulations lectures will take place on the day to consolidate knowledge.
As a result a candidate will become expert in managing critically ill patients in his or her environment and learn valuable insight into definitive hospital care.
At Verdigris Medical Education we understand the requirement for continuing medical education and appreciate that our candidates will come from a wide background and many with years of experience. It is our policy to provide a faculty made up of only the most senior instructors (emergency medicine consultants, senior nursing staff and senior paramedics) who continue to treat critically ill patients on a daily basis.
Not only can we ensure that our teaching is up to date and of the highest quality, we can pass on clinical pearls only acquired from continually treating real patients!
