February 2017 Burns Course

Feedback for Dr. Winston's teaching

This was probably the best course I've been to so far.

I got so much more than I expected. Not only did I learn house to manage burns, Dr De Mello took time to give each and everyone of us career advice. To date I have had no other person sit down and mentor me the way he did. I will definitely try to take more courses from merit, especially if he is teaching.

Practical first-hand accounts including innovative way of applying treatment in the pre-hospital and emergent scene. Case-based scenarios were also extremely useful in simulating real-life situations.

The scenario situations as they really made us think outside the box and put to practise all that we learned in the day.

The case presentations far exceeded my expecations and it was a pleasure to have crossed paths with Dr de Mello.

It was really helpful that Dr Mello customized the course to meet our groups expertise and challenged us to tactically assess and manage burn patients.

Practical tips and tricks for tackling burns and analgesia were particularly helpful.

Interactive teaching style kept sessions interesting and stimulating

Holistic approach to patient care also excellent
