Some of the volunteers of CDRS, along with members of the S.E.S. and St Johns Ambulance attended the Careflight MediSim programme this weekend at CDRS base in Cessnock.
The care received by a patient immediately after they are injured can determine their long term outcome. In regional, rural and remote areas, this care is usually provided in the first instance by local emergency services personnel and volunteers. It is then followed up by care from often stretched regional health services.
CareFlight, through our MediSim program, takes vital training to regional, rural and remote communities in Australia. This helps to save lives and improve health outcomes.
