RDWA Rural Emergency Skills Program (RESP)

We understand that maintaining emergency clinical skills is vital for resident rural GPs.

We have been providing access to the Rural Emergency Skills Program for 10 years to enable resident rural GPs who are providing Country Health SA LHN emergency services to retain their emergency medicine skills.

LearnEM provide this highly valued program delivered by a great team of clinicians led by Dr Peter Stuart and Dr Jason Bament.

RESP’s pre and post course activities and a two-day workshop delivers contemporary, relevant country focussed training, with a wider range of simulation-based learning; including management of the Difficult Airway, use of the Oxylog Ventilator for mechanical ventilation and non-invasive ventilation, Resuscitation of the Newborn and Resuscitation Leadership, Communication and Team work.

If you are a resident rural GP in South Australia who is contracted to provide Emergency Care to one or more of the Country Health SA LHN hospitals you are able to register to attend the course at no cost.

Applicants must acknowledge that they will complete all pre and post course modules within the required time lines and attend all sessions of the program.  Participants who do not complete the requirements will be charged the full course fees.

Each course has a maximum of 16 places.

The course dates and locations for 2017 are:
