Jellybean 22 with Ben Stanton & Dave Tingey

 

MultiDisciplineMEDSTARBen and Dave the MEDSTAR boys at “AeroMed” in Melbourne

Critical Care Medicine is not just about hospitals and doctors. It’s about the entire team. It’s also about the people that are at the heart of the process before you get to hospital. The nurses and paramedics that I have worked with are some of the most amazing people that I have ever met.

Ben and Dave are two such people; a nurse and a paramedic that are pushing the boundaries of what we can expect from these professions.

They were both speaking at AeroMed, the combined ASA/FNA (Aeromedical Society of Australia and Flight Nurses Australia) Conference a while back in Melbourne.

Check it out this year in Queenstown NZ; http://www.aeromedconference.com/

These guys are both working for MedSTAR doing new stuff; Nurse/Paramedic led U/S in pre-hospital medicine and Nurse Only Intra Aortic Balloon Pump transfers. That is not the norm in Australia.

It’s nice to hear about the positive experience these guys are having with the multi-disciplinary approach at the South Australian system. A lesson for us all.

Then they published it and presented it at a major conference. Of course they did.
