Rarely a day passes that Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section) flight nurses don’t have to battle adversity to provide medical care and comfort to people who are experiencing possibly the worst day of their lives.
Preparing the nurses to meet these challenges requires an ongoing commitment from the RFDS to train and upskill them to ensure they’re prepared for any situation that may occur – on the ground, or in the sky.
A key part of QSuper’s partnership with the RFDS is supporting flight nurses to attend the internationally recognised Specialised Training in Aeromedical Retrieval (STAR) program.
The STAR program is run from a discreet training facility in Brisbane, where participants are thrust into scenarios that are noisy, hot and confronting, simulating the high-pressure situations flight nurses can face every day.
Flight nurse Robyn Langton (pictured above) attended the program in Brisbane in October, and recalls the complex critical care scenarios she experienced during the two-day course.
“The incredible level of detail each scenario went into made it so realistic. I was involved in a variety of scenarios, from a car accident at a service station with multiple casualties to an obstetrics trauma case,” Ms Langton said.
“If we weren’t supported in education, we couldn’t keep practising our clinical skills at the level we need to. I can’t thank QSuper enough for their support that enables us to provide better care to our patients.”
The RFDS’s focus on ongoing professional development and training is why its flight nurses are recognised as being among the most elite aeromedical specialists in the world.
By investing in essential training for flight nurses, QSuper is helping to ensure the RFDS continues to provide vital emergency and primary healthcare services for many Queenslanders.
As a profit-for-member fund, QSuper’s number one priority is to ensure all members feel confident they can look forward to their best years in retirement.
QSuper is proud to partner with the RFDS to improve the wellbeing of Queenslanders, for the long haul.
