The Paramedics Australasia Tasmanian Chapter is pleased to announce we will be providing an educational session on the general care of neonates and infants relevant to the pre-hospital environment, presented by Dr Naomi Spotswood and Dr Hamish Jackson. Our very own AT paramedic Becca Lunnon will be presenting the results of her honours research into hypothermia in newborns before arrival to hospital.
Naomi Spotswood is a Neonatologist who has recently joined the Royal Hobart Hospital's Neonatal and Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. Her interests include neonatal research, medical education and improving health equity. She is currently undertaking a PhD program focussed on improving the diagnostic process for neonatal sepsis. Naomi enjoys teaching neonatal and paediatric emergency care in a variety of settings, particularly with healthcare professionals who work outside of the NICU environment.
Hamish’s specialist training in intensive care has strangely mirrored human development as he first trained in Neonatal Intensive Care, then undertook Paediatric Intensive care training in 2010, then adult anaesthesia and finally an adult intensive care fellowship. He now keeps a busy clinical schedule a consultant intensivist across the ages with appointments in Hobart and Melbourne, but still prefers theadage that adults ‘are just big babies’, rather than ‘children are just little adults’.
Becca is a recently qualified paramedic, who undertook part-time honours in paramedicine concurrently with her internship. She will be presenting the results of her research into hypothermia in newborns born before arrival to hospital.
