Trauma care doesn’t stop at the ED doors, why should trauma education? Join us for the trauma nursing course that starts where other courses end!
“Trauma Care After Resuscitation” is a two-day trauma fundamentals course that provides acute care, critical care, and perioperative nurses the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to care for the hospitalized trauma patient. TCAR covers a wide range of pathophysiologic and nursing concepts and is designed to be a broad, core-level program, rather than an advanced or specialty-area specific course.
An introduction to basic topics relevant to the nursing care of the hospitalized trauma patient:
- The trauma care spectrum
- The biomechanics of trauma
- The body’s response to injury
Learners participate in interactive expanding case scenarios that address the care of hospitalized patients with injuries to specific body systems. Each module introduces specific trauma care concepts including pathophysiology, assessment modalities, and complications. Surgical, medical, and nursing management options and outcome criteria are introduced while analyzing patients with:
- Thoracic trauma
- Abdominal trauma
- Musculoskeletal trauma
- Craniocerebral trauma
- Spine & spinal cord trauma
