120802 - Adult Emergency Workshop

  • : Online

Interactive workshop incorporating lectures and medical simulation to reinforce learnings on the following topics, adult trauma in the acute phase, emergency care of bites & stings (envenomation and anaphylaxis), Mental Health Act as it relates to high risk presentations with case based analysis & life threatening complications from street drugs and intravenous drug use.

Relevance to General Practice

The importance on continuing emergency education is identified by Hjortdahla et al (2016) when he comments that ‘GPs get less experience and feel more uncertain when encountering emergencies’. 

This programme allows local Emergency Physicians to provide training and support to General Practitioners who are providing, or may be called on to provide emergency medical care in rural hospitals and health centres. Where practical this education will be provided within the clinical setting using the facilities staff, equipment and processes. 

A major additional advantage of this program is the increased links, collegiality and respect developed between the clinicians. This effect works in both directions; the emergency physicians invariably gain an understanding of the constraints the general practitioners are working under (ACEM Emergency Medicine Education Training schedule 2011)
