Unknown - 2015
Rate this:
Australia, a country the size of a continent, is 14 times larger than France but has nearly three times fewer inhabitants. Given the great distances in the country, how can everybody receive medical care and treatment in the event of an emergency? Today, the flying doctor plays a leading role in Australia. Bernard Fontanille sets out to discover one of these organizations, Careflight. Bernard discovers the vast contrasts in Australia through farmers, surfers, and fishermen of the Sunshine Coast, and through rural hospitals that look as though they are part of a Western movie set. He attends training sessions, witnesses operations in the Bush, and shares a few very intense days with Mike the doctor, Paul the pilot, and Anthony the paramedic.
