2014 MEC a success

RAHC recently held another CRANAplus Maternity Emergency Care (MEC) course in Melbourne. We’d like to thank all those who were responsible for the event’s success, including CRANAplus, the participants and the RAHC team members who were involved.

In particular, we’d like to thank to Chris Kuhl in our Darwin office who coordinated logistics and liaised with participants and the CRANAplus team in the lead-up to the course. We’d also like to thank Candice Catterall in our Canberra office who ensured all participants met the criteria by providing placements dates and converting those dates into actual placements.

We were fortunate to have Sharon Livesey involved in the MEC as a facilitator – a familiar face to many RAHC Health Professionals (HPs) from her time as the RAHC Remote Educator. Sharon’s extensive remote expertise combined with her passion for RAHC and remote nursing enables her to provide excellent insight into various midwifery emergency issues out bush.

 

We also held a social event during the weekend for the MEC participants as well as other RAHC nurses and HPs who had expressed interest in learning more about RAHC and working remote. Guests mingled and HPs new to remote had an opportunity to ask questions and hear stories from our experienced nurses. From a RAHC perspective it was pleasing to hear that the support provided by the RAHC team was integral to helping HPs successfully transition to remote practice.
