This two-day emergency medicine course covers many of the common emergencies in rural practice that are relevant to the pre-hospital, small rural hospital and private rural practice environment.
The Rural Emergency Skills Training (REST) program is conducted by trained emergency medicine instructors experienced in rural general practice.
- Improve participants’ knowledge and confidence of emergency presentations.
- To enhance specific skills related to the initial assessment and stabilization of emergency presentations.
- Learn manual skills applicable to the management of emergency presentations.
- Rehearse the critical thinking required for the structured approach to the critically ill or injured patient.
- Bring about a change in their attitude and approach to emergency presentations in their practice.
- Identify ways that they can continue to practice and prepare for future emergency presentations.
- To generate confidence in the use of principles and skills in emergency care by use of simulation scenarios.
There are eight (8) assessment components for REST that are essential to pass in order to satisfactorily complete the course.
The eight assessment components are:
• Pre-course quiz
• Basic life support
• Safe use of Defibrillator
• Basic airway management
• Advanced Life Support
• Cervical spine immobilisation
• Post MCQ
• Final assessment scenario.
It is mandatory that participants be present for the entire duration of the REST course on both days (8am to 5pm local time). Therefore it is highly recommended for interstate travellers to arrive at the course location at least one day prior to the commencement of the course.
If for any unexpected reason a participant arrives after the course has commenced and missed the ‘Structured Approach’ and ‘Basic Life Support’ lectures, their place in the course will be forfeited. The participant will be required to re-book and this may also incur additional charges.
