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.
Relevance to General Practice
General practitioners (GPs) are commonly the first point of contact for patients requiring emergency treatment. Yet most feel that they are inadequately prepared to deal with these scenarios and that their training in managing such emergencies was inadequate. Many deaths from heart disease occur outside the hospital and present as sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Resuscitation is possible and all practices should be capable of providing this level of care. This intensive workshop will assist GPs to identify and manage trauma.
- Understand and demonstrate advanced airway management in a critically injured adult trauma patient
