Whakarewarewa Redwoods Forest rescue

Time: 0900 - 1600
Venue: Redwoods Forest (Offsite)
Facilitators: Paul Blakemore and Chris Denny
Cost: $180.00 inc gst, per person
CPD: Accredited by ACEM for 7 hours of CPD under the Group Learning domain 'Scientific meeting and conference'.

Participants will meet at the Millennium hotel and be transported to the Whakarewarewa Redwoods Forest by coach. Facilitated by members of the Auckland Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS), participants are invited to join the team for a fun, educational and interactive pre-hospital workshop.

Didactic lectures will be kept to a minimum with the majority of sessions being of a practical nature taking place in the majestic Redwoods forest (Whakarewarewa) in Rotorua.  Participants are invited to get on their bikes (provided) and join the team for a morning's ride where casualties will inevitably be happened upon and opportunities provided to both carry out procedures and manage challenging scenarios in an austere (but non-judgemental) environment.

While a stimulating programme can be guaranteed, the weather is less certain so please bring waterproof gear should the day turn inclement.  Bikes, helmets and lunch will be provided and participants will be able to keep their bikes for the remainder of the day in order that they can enjoy the many exhilarating trails the forest has to offer at their leisure.

This workshop is ideally suited to FACEMs (or equivalent) and Registrars nearing the end of their training though there are a limited number of places for observers.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.

All participants will be returned to the Hotel no later than 1600.

Please note: minimum of 20 and a maximum of 30 of participants are required.

But because there are so many apps available out there, if there is a particular app you find useful, please come prepared to show it and say why you find it useful. This will include live sessions using apps to navigate a series of clinical situations – so charge up your mobile device! In his next segment, Matt will show some apps, services and techniques that can help organise your non-clinical life, both in the professional and personal realms. This will include to-do apps, document and note organisation, and security. In the second half of the session, Martin will present an interactive journey into the world of Artificial Intelligence and how various providers are developing tools that could revolutionize the way we make decisions at the bedside.

Once again ensure your phone is charged to enable participation in the mobile voting process.
