Remote Coastal Emergency Medicine Conference

Rural Health West is running a Remote Coastal Emergency Medicine Conference at Gnaraloo Station, WA from 6 – 8 September 2013.


A new conference for 2013 designed to deliver high quality education in a stimulating remote location.

Rural Health West is pleased to offer a Remote Coastal Emergency Medicine Conference at Gnaraloo Station, a working pastoral station adjacent to the Ningaloo Marine Park on the Coral Coast of Western Australia.

This conference will provide participants with the opportunity to learn about the management of medical emergencies in a remote coastal environment. In a supportive environment that encourages relevant, practical and self-directed approach to learning, this course is designed to compel participants to address issues they may be faced with should an emergency result when working in or visiting a rural and remote coastal location. It will assist in the development of practical skills and professional abilities such as teamwork, leadership and dealing with stress and uncertainty.

The conference will be facilitated by a team of expert specialists, emergency physicians and general practitioners who have worked in rural and remote coastal regions. The education program will feature three hours of clinical upskilling each day, with topical sessions addressed through interactive presentations, clinical updates, simulated emergency scenarios, case study discussion and small group learning sessions.

Who should attend?

General practitioners who want to receive high quality education in a fun and stimulating environment.
Numbers are limited to 30 delegates. Due to limited accommodation and facilities, there is no spouse or family program attached to this event.
Priority is given to doctors residing and practising in rural and remote Western Australia.
