Objectives:

This study day will help you to understand and recognise the patients journey through the trauma care process – from pre-hospital care, emergency stabilization in the Emergency Department and preparation for transfer to the perioperative environment (together with specific supportive measures) or for transfer to a specialist centre.

You will also become aware of the supportive measures available for the whole team to maintain their emotional, psychological and physical wellbeing after exposure to traumatic cases.

Learning objectives:-

  • Visualise the patient journey through trauma care from roadside to bedside.
  • Describe care priorities on arrival at the Emergency Department.
  • Demonstrate techniques for Front of Neck Access and double lumen tube use in a clinical skills workshop.
  • Compare major haemorrhage management and protocol from the regional trauma unit/own local policy.
  • Discuss the care delivered to Trauma patients perioperatively, introducing the “damage control” protocols to non-trauma-based practitioners.
  • Consider psychological support of friends and colleagues after traumatic case exposure.
