Course Details

It is a course of two halves.  We are continuing with the popular critical condition CBDs, which this year will cover neurovascular injuries, compartment syndrome and physiological response to trauma.  There will also be a new quick-fire trauma meeting called “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” which will look at basic science of trauma, biomechanics and complications.

The other half of the course will be practical simulation sessions.  Each candidate will participate in a trauma moulage to fulfil the trauma resuscitation CEX.  There will also be spinal trauma assessments that can be counted towards the “initial assessment and referral of spinal trauma” critical condition.


Online Resources

There is no e-learning log or pre-course learning to be done before the course this year. However, Lisa has created a Padlet with some resources delegates can access and familiarise themselves with beforehand.
