RDN PODCAST #13 – Sue Coretti medSTAR KIDS

Retrieval nurses Ben Stanton & Sue Coretti were over on Kangaroo Island today to do some in-house training for our nursing staff on paediatric emergencies – the major strength being using local equipment and staffing, demonstrating failings in logistics rather than strategy.

After two hard days and a brief 10 mins of pelican feeding outside the hospital, I dropped Sue & Ben at the airstrip and grabbed a few minutes to quiz Sue about her role in training rural clinicians in emergencies (see her excellent presentation from last year’s Cairns aeromedical conference) and to discuss practical tips for dealing with such emergencies.

I also asked Sue about her feelings as an APLS Director and whether they matched my frustrations as an EMST Director … and mooted the possibility of greater involvement from medSTAR in the FOAMed community in the future?
