We’re heading outback this weekend…
Well rural Victoria – which is further than we’ve travelled for many a moon. The 5km restriction zone that kept us housebound for such a long time means that anywhere further than the local supermarket seems an adventure!
And this will be an adventure and a half. We’re taking our POCUS circus on the road to train rural doctors from all backgrounds the fundamentals of ultrasound. A bit of needle guidance, a bit of eFAST, a touch of cardiac and musculoskeletal – a veritable smorgasbord of sound. And we can’t wait. We love it when we can inspire through insonation and make a real difference where it counts.
Wish us luck – we might keep driving…
See you next week?
