Conference Brochure

Ultrasound in Rural Medicine Core - 3 Day Course is organized by Australian Institute of Ultrasound (AIU) and will be held from Apr 29 - May 01, 2019 at Australian Institute of Ultrasound, Gold coast, Queensland, Australia.

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.
