Injury and trauma management

Issues related to rural and remote practice

This interprofessional learning through simulation resource package consists of two components: an audiovisual resource and a supporting facilitator manual. In order to optimise the learning opportunities from this package it is recommended that participants are firstly introduced to the concepts of interprofessional learning and human factors in health care.

The audiovisual resource depicts the journey of a patient through the health care system following a motor vehicle accident at a rural location. The scenario also follows the patients as complications require her to be transferred from a rural hospital to a metropolitan hospital. The journey is depicted in six segments, which can be viewed sequentially to follow as a patient’s journey through the healthcare system.

  4. View segments 2 to 4 of the audiovisual resource
  5. Facilitator guided discussion around the scenario specific learning competency areas (samples given within manual)
  6. View segments 5 and 6 of the audiovisual resource
  7. Facilitator guided discussion, identifying and discussing what changes in interprofessional collaboration can be made to result in an alternative outcome.

Scenario brief
