REAL WORLD ANAESTHESIA COURSE (RWAC)

October 28 @ 8:00 am - November 2 @ 5:00 pm

 

This is the 28th Australian course and the fifth to be held in Frankston.

The aim of RWAC is to prepare anaesthetists for work in low and middle income countries (“the real world’ ) in a variety of humanitarian aid situations.

The course consists of a series of interactive lectures, case based discussions, hands on practical equipment sessions and in-theatre teaching of drawover anaesthesia.

 

Some topics covered include:

  • Drawover equipment
  • Oxygen supply
  • Ketamine and halothane
  • Equipment maintenance
  • Electrical supply
  • Psychological adaption to austere environments

ONLINE APPLICATIONS

Applications open on Monday 8 April 2019 at 8.30am.

Successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible and given instructions on how to pay the course registration fee.

The number of participants is limited to 18 to maximise interaction and hands-on learning. The course has regularly been oversubscribed in the past so to be fair places are allocated on a “first in first on” basis.

The course cost is AUD$ 3300 (including GST) and is payable if your application is successful.
