TEAM Trauma

Trauma resuscitation is best applied by a multidisciplinary team. Frequent exposure to trauma and the presence of an advanced trauma surgical team are often unavailable in smaller communities.

The TEAM Trauma course embraces best practice science across all disciplines to offer an integrated approach to trauma care for the non-expert, non-dedicated team faced with trauma resuscitation.

TEAM Trauma

Proven

Best practice science is embraced in multidiscipline team-based trauma resuscitation with proven learning strategies

Practical

Priority-driven core skills can make all the difference. Build on current abilities with 3-step models to act with speed and grace. 

Powerful

Ample practice with high acuity low occurrence (HALO) emergency events is reinforced with relevant scenario practice.

Course Overview

Review and integrate recent best practice updates in simulated trauma cases of escalating complexity:
  • team with agility
  • airway and ventilation
  • blood and fluid stabilization
  • structural stabilization
Agility in trauma care is of particular importance where resources are limited - pre-hospital, rural and remote hospitals but also within larger hospitals under strain i.e. staffing shortage and/or uncommon workload strain. Hone your skills in the moving pattern of priority interventions, free up resources where possible and focus expertise for high yield actions. Matching one, two or three key, rapidly applied interventions in a complex trauma emergency can have more imminent impact than a general dispersion of acceptable actions.
