On the Floor in Galle- An EM Teaching Workshop at THK


Nick Taylor and team are running a two day teaching workshop within Sri Lanka’s most modern and well developed emergency department- Teaching Hospital Karapitiya (THK) Emergency Trauma Centre in beautiful colonial Galle. 

Nick, an emergency physician from Canberra, Australia recently spent 6 months with the team at THK and has constructed a program centred on their needs.

Sessions will include;

  • Bedside Ultrasound
  • Non Invasive Ventilation
  • DSI and RSI
  • Status Asthmaticus Management
  • Management of Major Trauma

THK is becoming a nucleus of emergency training in Sri Lanka and this workshop will add to the already well developed EM training program (link to SLEM)

If you would like to help Nick with this program you can contact him directly or email DevelopingEM.
