90605 - Cardiac Emergency Management (CEM)

  • : Online

This stream has been designed to offer practising rural medical practitioners an update in cardiac emergencies. 

This Active Learning Module (ALM) will provide clinicians with the latest information on current issues presented by leading specialists in their field. 

Sessions will be addressed through clinical updates, interactive workshops and small group learning opportunities that have been specifically designed to treat a patient in rural and remote locations. 

The stream constitutes six hours of education.

Relevance to General Practice

In rural and remote areas of Australia the demands for advanced emergency care skills in general practice are significantly higher, due to the relatively low number of GPs, the relative lack of immediately accessible specialist services, and the logistical and geographical difficulties of evacuating the seriously ill. There is also a higher incidence of farming, mining, 
industrial and motor vehicle accidents and greater access to firearms in isolated areas. 

Developing skills in emergency medicine is seen as an essential element of the general practice training program. In addition, rural GPs may require advanced skills.
