- develop and enhance assessment, investigation and treatment skills for urgent/emergent patients presenting to the rural ED
- identify those patients who can be optimally managed in the rural ED and those who require transfer to a larger centre, ensuring safe patient transfers
- exchange ideas and information, forging links with other rural health professionals during shared learning experiences
