CCrISP® outreach program

As part of the Pacific Islands Project of the RACS, the CCrISP® Committee have conducted CCrISP® courses in Papua New Guinea and Fiji, funded by AusAid, since 2004. Parts of the course are modified to make it relevant to the Pacific Islands context, but the principles and objectives remain unchanged. Local consultant surgeons, anesthetists and emergency physicians have been trained as CCrISP® instructors and are supported by Australasian faculty.

Please contact the CCrISP office for more information about outreach courses.
