Relevance to General Practice

Metropolitan GPs and especially Rural GPs providing emergency services for a local hospital will inevitably encounter patients who need to have emergency ultrasounds. Regular updates are essential for maintaining the important clinical skill sets and critical thinking to provide the highest standard of critical care at the earliest possible opportunity. The Bedside Emergency Ultrasound course will focus on emergency topics that present in rural GP settings. 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
