Advanced workshop

The Clinical Emergency Management Program (CEMP) Advanced workshops have been designed to further build participants' knowledge, skills and confidence when responding to medical emergencies. These workshops are facilitated by a national team of highly trained intensive care paramedics. This workshop has been designed by GPs for GPs in direct response to feedback requesting an additional intensive workshop focusing on advanced adult resuscitation and paediatric emergencies.

Highlights from past participants

'Undoubtedly the best workshop I have been to in 25 years of general practice. Medical educators are a lovelybunch, great sense of humour, very skilled at teaching'.

'Excellent content. Pitched at good level for GPs, particularly Proceduralist GPs. Excellent presenters/medical educators. Nice to have no stressful exams and focus on more scenario practice'.

'This workshop offers a systematic approach to treating the sick child – many thanks much more confident now'.

'This was a very smooth weekend, and worked very well. This seemed to be the consensus among the participants.

Even by late on the second day my enthusiasm was still high'.
