The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care (PHEC) course will consolidate the emergency skills you require when working in unfamiliar or uncomfortable environments.
Over the duration of the day, you’ll learn real-world practical skills and participate in a range of emergency scenarios that you may encounter as a Rural Generalist, providing you with the skills required in preparing for patient care situations
outside the clinic or hospital.
Created by experienced Rural Generalists and pre-hospital care specialists, PHEC is run outdoors to provide a realistic experience.
Appropriate for: Rural Generalists, Registrars and other medical professionals
Previously named: Pre-Hospital and Retrieval Medicine (PHaRM)
The PHEC course is designed to enable Rural Generalists to learn skills in pre-hospital care and allow them to translate their existing clinical knowledge to the roadside and work effectively with ambulance and retrieval services to deliver meaningful interventions to critically unwell patients.
We've had bushfires, we've had floods, we're going to face disasters in the future, having Rural Generalists with skills in emergency medicine can make a huge difference."
- Dr Tim Leeuwenburg (FACRRM, PHEC facilitator, SandpiperAus Chair, Medical Retrieval Consultant & A/Prof AeroMed)
Please note: It is mandatory that participants be present for the entire duration of the PHEC course (8am to 5pm local time). Therefore it is highly recommended for interstate travelers to arrive at the course location at least one day prior to
the commencement of the course.
If for any unexpected reason a participant arrives after the course has commenced, their place in the course will be forfeited. The participant will be required to re-book and this may also incur additional charges.
