Christchurch CPD event October 2021

About The Event

Join us for our Christchurch CPD event and hear from field experts presenting on performing under pressure, and on triage and management.

Performance under pressure, presented by Geoff Sutton

High performing individuals are able to perform at the level they do because of key characteristics which remove roadblocks to success and reinforce useful coping strategies. Recognising where we all sit on these key resilience factors is the start of the high performer’s journey. This presentation will give participants an understanding of these important aspects of high performance and provide mechanisms to functionally develop skills in these five key areas.

Mass casualty incidents - real life experiences, presented by Dean Brown

Mass Casualty Incidents (MCIs) are thankfully few and far between, but the triage and management are an important skill to master. Key concepts will be presented.

Join us from 6.00pm for complimentary food and drinks (limited places available). Presentations start at 6.30pm NZDT and will also be streamed online, Monday 18th October 2021.
