In 2020 the Australian Department of Health engaged Medcast to deliver its SURGE Critical Care upskilling course to over 20,000 nurses. In 2021, Australia faces a resurgence of COVID-19 and the associated significant strain on our health system.

In order to maintain the skills and confidence of nurses we have developed a series of refresher webinars based on the SURGE Critical Care course. In an effort to support our health workforce in the COVID response, we are making one of the most popular topics free to all nurses.

This topic is part of our broader suite of refresher and rapid upskilling programs that may be suitable for your hospital or workplace. Please contact us if you would like to learn more.

If you expect you may be involved in the COVID response in your hospital or workplace, please join us for Respiratory Toolbox: Assessment and Management in the COVID era to upskill or refresh your knowledge on key respiratory assessment and management skills.

This case-based webinar will discuss: 

  • Mechanics of Breathing
  • Gas exchange and alveolar function
  • Arterial blood gas analysis
  • Considerations for treating COVID positive patients
    • Patient assessment
    • Oxygen Therapy including High Flow
    • Non-invasive ventilation
    • Intubation
