Facing a critical head trauma in an isolated BC community, physician Caroline Walker relied on both ROSe and RUDi real-time virtual support pathways to help her patient. She shares how both services worked in concert to provide critical, just-in-time support.

ROSe physician, MJ Slabbert, and RUDi physician, Brydon Blacklaws, explain key differences between the two services and what they share in common.
