Western Trauma Course
19 June @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Western Trauma Course (WTC) provides rural and remote health care practitioners with the education, re-training and re-skilling to successfully assess, triage and manage acute trauma patients, and is specifically aimed to meet the needs of rural and remote health care professionals, considering such issues as sparse population, limited medical facilities and staffing, and longer transport times.
The WTC covers the essential components of early trauma management through a combination of:
- eLearning modules
- interactive discussions
- graphic demonstrations
- practical hands on skill stations and trauma case scenarios.
Participants receive the eLearning module and a course manual approximately 3 weeks before the course and are provided with a certificate of attendance on completion.
Course participants will:
- learn new skills
- refresh skills not practised for some time
- gain confidence to deal with trauma patients
- gain knowledge in how to best organise their departments to receive trauma patients.
