CranaPlus Remote Emergency Care Course in Alice Springs
The Remote Emergency Care (REC) course is designed by remote health clinicians for remote health clinicians.
The course is contextualised to the remote and isolated practice, with current evidence-based content within a cross-cultural framework aligned with National Standards.
By using a blended learning approach, clinicians will develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to recognise an emergency, provide initial stabilisation and manage a range of medical and trauma presentations.
CRANAplus encourages clinicians to apply the knowledge and skills acquired learnt within the context of the policies of the employing health service and within each individual’s own scope of practice.
