The CARE Course is a travelling rural program for hospital and pre-hospital teams. This two-day course provides hands-on learning in a fun, warm, and supportive environment. Medical, trauma, obstetric, and pediatric emergency management are the focus of the course. Simulations are appropriate to the realities of rural practice with an eye toward supporting the teamwork and skills enhancement needed to provide rural emergency care.
