Dr Adam O'Brien MBBS DDU FACEM has worked as an emergency physician at the Royal Children's Hospital for over 18 years.
About a decade ago, he became intrigued by point-of-care ultrasound and its potential role to provide real-time anatomical, physiological, and pathological information for the clinician at the bedside.
After completing a Diploma in Diagnostic Ultrasound, he embarked upon setting up a safe and effective POCUS Service at the Royal Children’s Hospital almost five years ago. During this time there have been some hurdles to get over, but with this experience he hopes to share a few tips about setting up a governance framework to ensure patient safety.
