The fourth and final TROHPIQ Skills Day for the year was held at UQ Ipswich on Saturday 17th September. We covered important skills including cannulation, suturing, venepuncture, bandaging/slings, wound care, airways management and plastering in a small group setting. The day brought together Nursing and Medical students from across Queensland, giving us the opportunity to work and learn together. Overall, the day was a great success, and more Skills Days like this one are planned for Ipswich in the future.
Our thanks go out the the conveners particularly Chris and Jasmin, who organised and ran the Skills Day.
