Course: Leeds Major Trauma Course

Varies according to grade and base hospital.

Venue: Postgraduate Centre, B Floor, Gilbert Scott Building

There are also places available for Qualified nurses (Band 5+) and HCSW working in EM as well as paramedics.

Key Benefits, Format & Learning Outcomes: The course is aimed at the way in which the Major Trauma Team works when caring for a patient with significant injuries. The interest is less on the clinical management of the patient and more on the processes and concepts involved in the initial care of the major trauma patient

Candidates are divided into two teams to work through four scenarios. Each case starts with a pre-alert allowing the team to prepare. The patient (who may be SimMan or an actor) will then be delivered. The scenario ends when a definitive management plan has been established

Whilst one team is working hard, the other will be watching via video link and will be expected to provide constructive feedback in the debrief.

What’s Included: Lunch and Refreshments

Approved by the Royal College of Emergency Medicine for 6 CPD Credits

Additional Information: This course is unavailable to book via the Medical Education Leeds Website. For further information, fees and payment methods please contact the course administrator:
