TROHPIQ’s Nursing and Allied Health team have already been hard at work in 2018 to bring you a range of fantastic events! From stalls at Market Day to the recent Bush Challenge Day, there’s been lots going on – and it’s only March! Check out these reviews from some of our Nursing and Allied Health Representatives.
Bush Challenge Day
TROHPIQ’s Bush Challenge Day was a great success! Participants enjoyed a morning of team building and communication activities- playdoh, cotton wool, rope and jars of water were all utilised to bring teams together. A barbeque lunch of sausages and veggie skewers replenished the crew before the main event- the bush health scenario. The two teams were challenged to consider an accident scenario from both a medical and allied health perspective, to identify and solve hypothetical problems, and work together to make clinical decisions in complex circumstances. Both teams were certainly challenged! A scavenger hunt around Wivenhoe Dam wrapped up the event before the weary squad headed back to Brisbane.

Careers in Rural Health Evening
Our first Careers in Rural Evening consisted of speakers with various rural health experience. Attendees found it incredibly valuable and were able to get a sense of what life is like when working in rural communities; they all really embrace your presence and knowledge. The speakers were very friendly and welcomed questions from students and some were even encouraging TROHPIQ students to get involved in upcoming conferences!
