PRIME Webinars

Welcome to the PRIME responders webpage where we will be uploading the recordings of our monthly educational webinar programme. We aim to provide a wide range of topics for this webinar programme, aligned with the feedback we receive from you via our online survey at the end of each webinar; so keep us updated on the webinar topics of most interest to you!

We understand our PRIME responders are very busy at work and on-call, so for these rural health professionals it can be challenging to access relevant continuing professional development. We will source presenters who are highly qualified and experienced health professionals in their specialty areas, so we hope these webinars will assist to keep you up to date on a broad spectrum of emergency care topics.
