  • political and funding battles, 
  • credentialing, audit and governance 
  • ultrasound integrated simulations, phantoms and manikins,

Tanya Carleton, ASUM Education Manager, will be present to support/advise us on the 27th, and representatives from Sonosite and the Australian Institute of Ultrasound have also expressed an interest in attending/supporting. We are also inviting PEM Fellows and sonographers with a particular interest in point-of-care ultrasound to contribute and attend on the 27th. 
We welcome ideas of other ways this group could support PEM POCUS development in Australasia, and look forward to connecting with you through 4th Thursdays and online.
