Rustica held its first Allied Health Skills day on the 30 th of July. We had both Nursing and Paramedic students attend a day that involved learning cannulation, venepuncture and vital signs.
It was great to have both disciplines present as we were able to run a patient handover scenario that incorporated paramedic students assessing a ‘call out’ and handing over to nursing students who re-assessed and admitted the patient to ‘hospital’.
We have received wonderful feedback from participants about this event and would like to expand it in the future. Thank you to all the tutors who volunteered their time to help out!
