191060 - RESP Critical Care Workshop

Learn EM Pty Ltd

The RESP Critical Care workshop focuses on essential skills in critical care, resuscitation, ALS and extended emergency medicine skills. The workshop features intensive small group training in procedural skills and clinical simulation in the assessment and recognition of serious illness, resuscitation, stabilisation and transfer of the critically ill, and team skills, communication and clinical leadership. Each session will have a particular focus on emergency presentations in a rural setting.

Relevance to General Practice

Management of the critically ill or injured adult or child is a vital skill for all health professionals. Whether it’s in General practices, rural hospitals or emergencies departments GP’s need to be prepared for managing a wide range of emergencies, be confident and to recognise and treat serious illness and provide the highest standard of critical care at the earliest possible opportunity. The content of each workshop builds on existing knowledge and clinical skill, refreshes less commonly used skills, and allows a platform to further develop team performance in emergency and critical care.
