Clinical Skills Development Service presents Clinical Skills Speedway
Saturday 15 June
11.30am - 1pm OR 2pm - 3.30pm

All stations below are included in this rotational workshop.
Workshop is strictly limited to 32 participants. You must nominate your preference at time of registration.

Station 1

Airway Station
Using airway head part task trainers, participants will use a range of different airway adjuncts and airway manoeuvres to
optimise ventilation using a bag valve mask. This station will give tips and guidance on how to attain a good seal on
different patients for effective ventilation.

Station 2

CPR Station
Showcasing brand new software from Laerdal, this station combines technology, clinical skill and entertainment. Each
participant will be guided through correct compression techniques before putting their skills to the test. The compressions
performed by an individual will be translated into a digital ambulance racing across a screen. The most technically correct
CPR performance (correct rate, depth, and recoil), will win the race.

Station 3

Defibrillation Station
Using a Lifepak 15, this station will run through the knowledge required to achieve safe defibrillation, pacing, and
cardioversion of a deteriorating patient. Using ShockLink technology, this station will allow participants,
to safely practise the delivery of energy, with all shock energy defused within the cable.

Station 4

IO Egg Challenge
This station has been extremely popular during previous events, combining simulation education and competition.
Using an EZ-IO drill to practise the technique of gaining intraosseous access, all participants must work together to drill
as many holes as possible into a raw egg without cracking the shell.

Many professionals find it hard to navigate these challenges – particularly if they transition from jobseeker to employer. Partnering with a recruitment company from the early stages of your career ensures you have the ongoing support and guidance on this journey, and most importantly, prevents you from falling out of love with your job.
