Event Details

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.

Learning Objectives

  1. Perform intraosseous needle insertion safely and effectively.
  2. Demonstrate safe and effective basic paediatric airway management – including reasonable ability to intubate if required in an emergency.

  4. Assess and safely manage the initial presentation of the critically ill child using an ABCD approach.
  5. Assess and safely manage common paediatric emergency presentations .
