In 2012 RAHC developed our first quick reference clinical flip cards in conjunction with CRANAplus to provide our health professionals with important clinical guidelines that could be quickly checked. The flip cards were developed and distributed to our health professionals to be affixed to a lanyard.
RAHC identified that the information we provide via the flip cards could be better delivered in an App to ensure a greater coverage to our health professionals and also allow us to update the clinical content more often, leading to safer practice.
The RAHC app includes four important clinical sections: Remote Emergency, Maternity Emergency, Primary Health Care and Remote Safety.
The sections include the following guidelines:
Remote Emergency Care Cards (CRANAplus)
Advanced Life Support (Adult)
Advanced Life Support (Infant and Children)
Patient Assessment Mnemonics
Primary / Secondary Survey
Maternity Emergency Care Cards (CRANAplus)
Activate Management of Third Stage
Severe Postpartum Haemorrhage
Primary Health Care Cards (CRANAplus & Australia Department of Health)
Adult and Paediatric GCS Chart
Remote Safety (CRANAplus)
Important Phone Numbers
Personal Risk Assessment
Bush Support Self-Care practice
Aggression Management and De-escalation Techniques
