It’s been a pleasure having former KI Doc, Dr James Doube back on Kangaroo Island for a short locum stint, but also a chance to catch up and talk about various schemes.
Jamie is a rare breed – a former career as paramedic and wildlife conservationist, he’s also a GP-surgeon, recent JCCA-graduate GP-anaesthetist and has carved out a niche career in truly remote & austere medicine with the Australian Antarctic Division & other organisations.
Dr Doube is also a wonderful experimental test subject.
He is WAY to modest to mention his award of the 2012 Australian Antarctica Medal for his services as both expedition medical officer but also conservationist – read more about his exploits here. He’s been involved in eradicating rabbits from Macquarie Island & with TEAM RAT on South Georgia.
In this brief podcast we discuss his work with AAD and particularly the potential for FOAMed to disseminate information to remote clinicians.
Jamie highlights the pitfalls of difficult internet access and the need to keep FOAMed resources small and accessible by low bandwidth. The idea of a ‘just a minute‘ series of procedural videos is warmly embraced.
