It is provided for year 5 medical undergraduate students and includes theoretical sessions by experienced clinicians, practical skills  assessment, airway management and simulations to consolidate all the learning over the weekend. The weekend includes the generous support  of the Oatlands community for accommodation, catering and role playing and their assistance is invaluable in the success of the weekend.

Agfest 2015

Agfest - a multi-award winning event organised by the volunteer members of the Rural Youth Organisation of Tasmania, offered an exciting opportunity for business and community stakeholders to attend  at the Quercus Youth Park, Carrick, in Tasmania’s northern midlands.

Around 3000 people visited the University of Tasmania (UTAS) tent over 3 days (7th, 8th and 9th May 2015). Students from Nursing, Medicine, Pharmacy, Exercise Physiology and the general public (including school groups) had the chance to participate in simulation based activity conducted by TCEN; to practice their life support and CPR skills. The weather was challenging at times but the people made this a very enjoyable event for all involved.
