Introduction to point-of-care ultrasound for rural GPs

Saturday 7 August 2021, 8.30am - 4.30pm

Point-of-care ultrasound is an increasingly affordable and efficient diagnostic tool in general practice, particularly in areas with limited access to specialist services.

Why attend

The full-day workshop will increase your understanding of the applications of point-of-care ultrasound in the diagnostic process. Experienced rural doctors and sonographers will guide you through the diverse applications of point-of-care ultrasound in primary care services using advanced, high-end mobile ultrasound equipment provided by our sponsor, Philips.

Capped at 30 participants, you’ll rotate through six stations:

  • eFast
  • deep venous thrombosis
  • heart and lung ultrasound
  • intravenous line placement and foreign object retrieval
  • musculoskeletal soft tissue
  • first trimester transabdominal obstetric ultrasound.

The workshop is a CPD Accredited Activity under the RACGP CPD Program (eligible for 40 points) and is approved for all categories of the Rural Procedural Grants Program.
