"The days were full & informative. Very enjoyable. A great learning environment facilitated by a great team."
"Understanding of how remote trauma care delivery works, what the issues & restrictions are."
"Thank you again for such a well run and practical course. It’s the only RAN course covering danger that I have attended and definitely the only course covering extrication from a vehicle. I also really appreciated how you emphasised the value of remote clinicians, you often feel your safety/wellbeing has no value out bush."
