RnR Rounds has been certified by the College of Family Physicians:
The RCCbc, through its Rural Education Action Plan offers a Rural Locum CME Program for eligible Rural Physician locums, including RnR Rounds.
Rural Health Professions Action Plan (RhPAP) offers CPD for practising rural Alberta physicians and other health professionals to upgrade existing skills or gain new skills...
RnR Rounds is evolving! We're built on the tenet that spaced repetition + repeated exposure, is better than a brief but intense "bootcamp" approach for complex resuscitation education and training.
Historically, we have offered 10 monthly sessions @ 2hours each. (20 hours of sim each academic year.)
In 2023-2024 we're introducing a slight variation:
4 hours sessions approx every 6 weeks.
That is: only six sessions in total over the year, but increasing to 24 hours of simulation time.
We're excited to try this for many reasons:
Why the change?
(1) We can offer even more content! Did you know that RnR Rounds has 15 modules? Yet historically we can only cover ten modules per year. Four extra hours of sim means more content, on rural topics where it counts!
(2) We want to maximize your time & simplify your scheduling. We absolutely stand by the value of "Spaced Repetition Learning", but committing to ten sessions per year has proven all but impossible for busy professionals. We're optimistic with only six intensive evenings, arranging an early departure from your clinic or arranging a babysitter for your kids will be less of a hassle. (40% less!)
(3) There's an economy of scale that we can pass that on to you.
Costs of sim training have risen significantly, and a tuition increase was inevitable. However, with this format change we are pleased to offer an additional 20% of training with only a 15% increase in tuition costs. (And 0% increase in tuition for virtual participants.)
RnR Rounds makes full use of state of the art Simulation Facilities. The program is always trailblazing new and cutting edge simulation techniques to provide zero risk, rural resuscitation learning opportunities. Content is based on the latest and most relevant evidence. What we offer feels both real and relevant to rural practice.
Come try it out, you won't be disappointed!
RnR Rounds is the only hands-on resuscitation program we know of, offering the opportunity for regular and ongoing participation all year long.
Brush up on your knowledge & skills, then keep them sharp in a fun, safe and effective learning environment.
Feel confident next time you are required to face a critical patient in a resource-limited setting.
RnR Rounds is operated in a revenue-neutral fashion. Membership collected is distributed to fairly compensate our expert-colleague facilitators for their time, to improve and update the curriculum, and to introduce and optimize new innovations to the program.
Money left over at the end of the year is re-injected back into program development.
