Important Announcement

Expedition & Wilderness Medicine started a world movement for medics working in remote and austere locations. We remain at the forefront in all we do and that's why we are changing our name to 'World Extreme Medicine'. It reflects a change in how we as a worldwide community of medics respond to emergencies and an ever widening range of opportunities for adventurous medics... Where man goes, medicine must follow.

Pre-hospital Trauma Care Workshop, 12 CPD | Fulham, London | April 2017
15 April 2017 to 16 April 2017  

‘The Trauma workshop enables practitioners to effectively treat acutely ill patients in a constantly changing pre-hospital environment’.

Now accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh for 12 CPD.
 
The Trauma course is an innovative, focused and highly interactive two day workshop. Expert faculty will teach the key skills needed to assess and stabilise the critically ill trauma patient in pre-hospital environments, leading to improved patient outcomes and survival.
 
This course is ideal for medically qualified staff (nurses, doctors and paramedics) seeking to pursue a focus on trauma care both in and out of the hospital. The course will explore the pathophysiology, primary injuries and secondary injuries involved in trauma. It will also teach the management of such injuries to minimise sequelae from secondary traumatic injuries. The course will also identify sensitive and specific tools and signs of injury to help identify time critical cases. 
 
‘The Trauma workshop is designed to produce a more resilient, effective and efficient approach in acutely injured and unwell patients. The focused patient assessment and stepwise approach enables the optimal treatment to the critical patient in the shortest time frame.’
