    This course is specifically designed for the general practitioner and the practice team and emphasises the identification and management, of acute emergencies, in the pre-hospital setting. The training is based on the latest Australian and international scientific research in emergency medicine. The course gives general practitioners and practice teams confidence in their capacity to effectively manage a range of acute medical and traumatic emergencies, by teaching a simple and easy to remember algorithm for use in general practice. The algorithm provides the practitioner and the team with easy to remember diagnostic tools, procedures and techniques to manage acute coronary syndrome, cardiac arrest, asthma and respiratory distress, anaphylaxis, seizures, hypoglycaemia and trauma, including emergency decompression of pneumothorax, cricoid puncture and interosseous access. The course was the first in Australia to introduce general practitioners to the use of iGel airway adjuncts in advanced airway management and the use of interosseous injection guns for emergency access to the vascular compartment when a vein is not available. If you are looking for a course that is for general practice and is a leader in the use of crew resource management and leadership techniques, in managing medical emergencies, then this course is for you.
