Rural Health Webinar Series - Care of the critically unwell child
This instalment of the Rural Health Webinar Series will explore care of the critically unwell child, including cardiac arrest, severe breathing difficulty, sepsis, neurological emergencies, neonatal emergencies, and red flags for severe illness.

He works one day per week at Tharawal Aboriginal Health service, teaches medical students, instructs on Advanced Paediatric life support courses, and is an examiner for the College of Physicians.
