Taking Outdoor Education Indoors (smaccFORCE)

What can hospital specialties learn from teaching and training in prehospital and retrieval medicine - about patients, our environment, our team and ourselves?
What can hospital specialties learn from teaching and training in prehospital and retrieval medicine? A medical education enthusiast’s thoughts on the application of educational theory to the challenges of the prehospital environment, based around experiences at Sydney HEMS. Reflections on teaching and learning about patients, the environment, the team and the clinician herself – and how this educational experience will shape future challenges as an educator.

Minor Injuries? Major Trauma! (smaccMINI)

Paediatric Major Trauma is (thankfully) rare - so how can we take good care of minors with major injuries?

Paediatric major trauma is rare and terrifying. Seriously injured children need good care but a number of factors (the relatively unusual presentations, their size, the way they communicate, their parents..!) make looking after them feel a lot harder than it really is. So what do clinicians really need to know to look after paediatric major trauma? We need to understand differences in physiological responses to injury (and how these can fox our triage assessments), differences in patterns and mechanisms of injury (and how these correspond to the way we diagnose, image and manage injuries in children) and how we can best prepare ourselves to make sure we look after these children well.
