Through the use of three teaching styles we will reinforce principles of trauma care and seek to in-still good practice. This course is focused on initial care around head injuries, chest injuries, traumatic cardiac arrest and blast and ballistic injuries. It will also touch on crew resource management and effective leadership on scene in the single and multi casualty scenarios.
The course timetable below illustrates the subject format of the course and the modalities of teaching. Within the debriefs there will be time to focus on the wider scene control and CRM aspects of the scenarios. All scenarios are designed to ensure maximum learning and reinforcement of taught material. A structured pre-read will be sent to every participant together with joining instructions.
