Dear friends and colleagues,
It is with great pleasure that I share with you CAA's latest initiative, a 2020 webinar series designed to inspire and educate with a range of speakers discussing topical issues from around the ambulance world.
We are excited to bring you wonderful speakers including Prof Richard Lyon, St John WA CEO Michelle Fyfe and Dr Elizabeth Berryman of Chnnl who will share with us their thoughts on traumatic cardiac arrest, role of women in ambulance services and mental health among others.
These are short 1-hour long webinars designed to fill a gap left behind from postponing our CAA 2020 Congress due to COVID-19 restrictions. We are lucky to have access to an incredible line up of speakers and with the majority of us being stuck at home with limited access to education we are hoping that our webinars will provide you with engaging and stimulating topics.
The webinars are free to all CAA member services staff and have a small fee for external non-member services and organisations. Webinars will carry CPD points to contribute to your ongoing professional development.
We hope you will find the webinars an exciting addition to CAA's offering and hope to see many of you join us on 13 August to kick start the series.
With warm regards,
We are proud to be partnering with long-term CAA supporter, Phillips on our first webinar.
We are excited to bring back Professor Richard Lyon who you will remember was one of our keynotes at last year's CAA 2019 Congress in Perth. We hope you will join us to hear Prof Lyon speak from his wide range of expertise and experience on the Management of Traumatic Cardiac Arrest (TCA).
TCA is the most urgent, time-critical, life-threatening trauma situation Emergency Medical Service personnel can face. The understanding and management of this condition has progressed significantly in the last few years.
In this exciting, topical webinar, Prof Lyon will present the epidemiology and pathology of TCA; describe the ‘HOT’ algorithm of pre-hospital interventions; how to maximise the chance of survival and address some key issues such as whether chest compressions should be performed in TCA.
Join our webinar for an exciting journey of clinical education and best practice sharing on the management of TCA to improve clinical outcomes and maximize survival.
