Advanced Remote Emergency Care
Designed specifically for Nurses and remote GPs, but open to a variety of remote health care professionals, the Advanced Remote Emergency Care course aims to extend the competencies of the experienced Remote Health Practitioner to an advanced level. It has a focus on team leadership, critical thinking and communication in emergency situations.
We are currently redesigning and redeveloping our Advanced Remote Emergency Care (AREC) course.
The overarching goals of this work include:
- To align the new AREC with our Remote Emergency Care course (REC) course (in modular form, with substantial practice prior to the face-to-face workshop).
- To ensure that the content in the AREC course is substantially different (more advanced) than the content in the REC course.
- To provide dynamic simulations that assist participants to develop: clinical reasoning; early recognition of clinical deterioration; confident input into team decision-making; and effective handover.
I know I was asked a number of times if the level was too basic. The content was excellent. Often the hardest skills to learn are teamwork and leadership and these can only be practiced on courses such as these. Great course, great venue. Job well done.
