Clinical Governance Day 16th November

Fantastic learning opportunities ahead!

Next week we’ll be exploring not one but TWO interactive cases as Geoff Healy takes us through a tricky clinical case, while Alan Laverty & Aircrewman James Koens talk logistics in the context of a recent job they were involved in.

With the monthly airway registry, new balloon pump training, awesome simulation and a tasty hangar BBQ lunch on the cards too, it’s definitely one you don’t want to miss!

All NSW health staff are welcome to attend (a sign-in is required on the day). You can find directions here.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Clinical Governance Day 2 November 2016

After the success of the Airway Extravaganza (thanks to all involved and especially to Clare Hayes-Bradley!) it’s time to settle down and return to the time-honoured basics of governance in the form of Morbidity and Mortality.

Geoff Healy shall be refreshing us on the finer points of ventilation (it’s not just 500/12/5 apparently so all ED physicians should probably attend). This talk should not be confused with Geoff venting which is a different talk entirely.

Jennifer Beudeker will be joining us to demonstrate the Optiflow high flow nasal oxygen system which we are encountering more frequently in our inter hospital transfer work.

Finally Sam Immens will be tearing himself away from Mount Doom where he is working on the one checklist to rule them all and sharing some logistics from a case of a disappearing motorbiker. How’s that for a Scooby-Doo ending?

A BBQ lunch will be available.

All NSW Health staff are welcome to attend, a sign in is required. See here for directions: https://sydneyhems.com/contact.

See you there!

Clinical Governance Day 19th October

airway-day-cgd-flyer-2

Next Wednesday our Clinical Governance Day will feature an airway extravaganza! It’s time to hone those airway skills from RSI currency to paediatric surgical airway, CMAC to Ambu A Scope and King Vision.

The day kicks off with a review of our current practices with a look through the service’s airway registry, before we break into small groups to work on specific skills under the keen eye of Clare Hayes-Bradley who deserves a special mention for her hard work in putting all this together – thank you Clare!

We’ll be joined by the trainers from Storz who are bringing some CMAC kit to aid our familiarity with the scopes available in many NSW Emergency Departments and we’ll be welcoming the team from Zoll who are coming to help us make sure we are getting the most from our monitoring.

As ever there’ll be a BBQ lunch down in the hangar so come armed with a few dollars. You might also want to have a look at some of these in advance 🙂

CGD 5 October 2016

Our next Clinical Governance Day is on 5 October 2016 from 0800-1400.

Dr Albert Chiu (Interventional Neuroradiologist at Prince of Wales) will be kindly joining us and presenting on the latest developments in clot retrieval for hyperacute stroke.

A multidisciplinary team will be presenting a recent challenging fixed wing case with multiple decision points both logistical and medical. Full audience participation will be required so we will endeavour to avoid a repeat of the great coffee drought of 21/9.

There will be the regular offerings of Morbidity and Mortality with Airway Registry after lunch. A BBQ lunch will be available in the hangar.

All NSW Health staff are welcome to attend, a sign in is required. See here for directions: https://sydneyhems.com/contact.

See you all there.

Clinical Governance Day 21st September 2016

Join us next Wednesday for a human-factors-focused clinical governance day at the Bankstown helicopter base.

We are particularly excited to welcome Paul Mayer, a Naval medic who returned from operational duties in Afghanistan earlier this year. He’s going to talk about his experiences of human factors in combat along with his reflections on how the Sydney HEMS induction course (which he attended in 2014) helped prepare him for delivering care on the frontline.

We’ll be undertaking an interactive exploration of some recent challenging cases from the service and taking time to learn from excellence in our HEMS practice (formally known as ‘Awesome and Amazing’).

We’re hoping to take a break for a BBQ lunch in the hangar before rounding off the day by putting our thoughts into action with some simulation.
