CRANAplus have just completed a review of the AREC (Advanced Remote Emergency Care) program which will be ready to launch in 2017 in Tamworth. CRANAplus recommends that an AREC be undertaken every two years for those staff working in remote and isolated settings where they need to take a leadership role in an emergency situation. 

We are actively seeking registrations for this AREC course from Emergency Department health professionals, Medical Officers, RN’s and Nurse Educators. 

The program now runs over 3 days rather than 4 and has a completely new look.  Register now!.
