it is a vocational training program for medical practitioners in remote and isolated communities throughout rural and remote Australia. The purpose of the program is to train doctors in remote communities for remote communities.
This recording was part of the ongoing videoconferencing educational sessions that they use to teach and connect trainees spread over some of the most remote locations in the country.
I was honoured to be asked to be the special guest “chump” for what was a very challenging but realistic case in northern Australia. Certainly not a case for the uninitiated! A lot going on and some logistics that would trouble the most experienced rural doc.
The audio is not 100% crisp, but given the fact we were talking to 60 odd trainees in dozens of locations it is pretty good.
have a listen and get a feel for what it is like to sit in the seat of a remote GP
I am a GP working in Broome, NW of Western Australia. I work as a hospital DMO (District Med Officer) doing Emergency, Anaesthestics, some Obstetrics and a lot of miscellaneous primary care. Also on the web as @broomedocs | + Casey Parker | Contact
