Dr Harvey Hunt, FACEM will provide GPs in Griffith and Leeton areas with an opportunity to access a full day workshop discussing various trauma presentations these medical practitioners may encounter in rural hospitals and teaching trauma assessment and management from the Emergency Management perspective.Relevance to General Practice
Rural practitioners are required to manage various trauma cases without the benefit of a skilled multidisciplinary team; with limited numbers of trained staff, and with less frequent exposure to such cases leading to degradation of skills and less confidence in managing such cases. Additionally the trauma patient may be known to members of the rural team leading to psychological constraints in their management.
In summary the EMET Trauma workshops will help fulfill the need for rural practitioners to be conversant in management of the trauma patient, and for the practitioner to be more confident in the way they manage trauma, both leading to better rural trauma outcomes.
These skills and confidence will lead to promoting rural practitioner well being, and retention.
