The TROHPIQ skillsday at Herston last Saturday was a great success! More than 120 students came geared with their stethoscopes and a burning desire to gain some hands-on experience. Students rotated between 5 skills stations, which were venepuncture, cannulation, suturing, vital signs and airway management and bandaging. Each session began with a brief and succinct presentation from an experienced clinician in the relevant field. The rest of the session, students formed small groups, each led by a student tutor, and put those newly-acquired skills to practice on the mannequins. It was fantastic to see the beaming faces as students hurried on from one session to the next, and to hear their excited chatter about the skills over morning/afternoon tea. A big thank you to all the participants and the tutors!
