Rural Health Continuing Education - RHCE
Rural Health Continuing Education (Stream 1) Simulation Education Upskilling Program
The RHCE (Stream 1) is an initiative aimed at providing professional support for medical specialists in regional, rural and remote Australia which is overseen by the Committee of Presidents of Medical Colleges (CPMC) on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Health and Aging, and administered by the Royal College of Physicians (RACP) on behalf of the RHCE project committee.
In this round, the Sydney Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre (SCSSC) will coordinate the project entitled “Using simulation and the theme of the deteriorating patient to develop skills and training capacity in rural and remote multi-professional teams”, to be delivered between April 2011 and April 2013.

- A series of four clinical up-skilling workshops and three train the trainer workshops will be delivered from the SCSSC and host rural centres. The four clinical up-skilling workshops will focus on different aspects of the topic ‘recognition and management of the deteriorating patient’. Three train-the-trainer (TTT) courses will focus on different educational methods and simulation modalities. Eligible specialists and others are encouraged to apply for any or all of these workshops as individual practitioners.
- Up to ten specialists may apply to host a clinical up-skilling workshop from their rural hospital facilities with the assistance of the SCSSC project team.
