There is 1 thing that is certain……..multidisciplinary teamwork is essential for R&R locations.
Just imagine being called to a 200kg female collapsed in the community. Volunteers need to be encouraged, nurtured, supported & trained to handle just about anything.
As a HC professional you have the knowledge, skills & ability to support volunteers to render excellent assistance in any emergency.
If your volunteers are failing before you rant & rave about their lack of competency first look at your own especially in regards to teaching & supporting.
To all volunteers……keep up the good work, we need you & the community relies on you.
Thank you so much for your invaluable assistance over the years !!!
Best wishes, Karen.
