Conference Brochure

Ultrasound in Rural Medicine Core - 3 Day Course is organized by Australian Institute of Ultrasound (AIU) and will be held from Jan 21 - 23, 2019 at Australian Institute of Ultrasound, Gold coast, Queensland, Australia.  This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 40 Category 1 points.

Course Description:
Limited time is the daily routine of a general practitioner. However, an informed use of point of care ultrasound can risk stratify many difficult decisions. Is this heart failure? Renal colic, cholecystitis or an abdominal aortic aneurysm? Pneumothorax? Should I refer this patient? All these questions can be answered at the bedside, with nothing more than a hand-held ultrasound. This three-day course provides a basic introduction to problem solving for these low risk-high stakes questions. This course targets important branch points in management decisions rather than a deep dive into any one system. Take these tools home, practise in your own environment, then work with us toward credentialing in those protocols that will have the highest yield in your job.

Course Content:
• Basic Physics principles
• Abdominal aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
• E-FAST protocol
• Biliary
• Renal hydronephrosis and calculi
• Basic Echo in Life Support (BELS)
• Vascular access

Course Objectives:
At the end of this course the attendees will be able to:
• Identify the parameters of safe application of ultrasound and its limitations in medical diagnosis
• Identify the physical principles, artefacts and the steps for image optimisation while performing ultrasound.
• Practice “hands on” ultrasound scanning skills required to maximise diagnostic ability in answering relevant clinical questions
• Recognise the sonographic appearances of normal and abnormal structures required to answer common clinical questions
• Perform AAA, E-FAST, BELS, Biliary, Hydronephrosis and Renal Calculi and Vascular Access ultrasound techniques
• Acquire images obtained on normal adult volunteers & phantoms
• Interpret images from normal adult volunteers
• Recognise the variants and abnormalities from presentations and case-based learning. Document the ultrasound findings
• Equip the learner with the foundation skills to begin to incorporate the ultrasound skills with the clinical situation to make appropriate management decisions
