Skills Days

TROHPIQ Skills Days are run several times per year, and represent a popular event for new TROHPIQ members. Skills Days bring together professional health staff and senior health students to teach medical, nursing and allied health students basic clinical skills they will need for future hospital placements. These events are hands-on, fun, and provide an opportunity to meet and network with other passionate health professionals and students.

The stations vary each event and aim to teach a variety of skills and techniques, including:

Suturing

Airway Management

Basics of Birthing

Plaster casting

Basic Life Support

Intraosseous Access

Venepuncture

Cannulation

Emergency Skills Workshop

Use of Doppler ultrasound for vascular assessment

Typically two sessions will run throughout the day, with an afternoon and a morning session. All TROHPIQ members are welcome to attend.

The proposed dates for Skills Days in 2018 are:

Skills Day 1 – Saturday 10th of March

Skills Day 2 – Saturday 19th of May

Skills Day 3 – Saturday 18th of August

Dates will be confirmed early 2018. Check back here soon.
