Rural Trauma Team Development Course

The Rural Trauma Team Development Course (RTTDC) emphasizes a team approach to the initial evaluation and resuscitation of the trauma patient at a rural facility. The course assists health care professionals in determining the need to transfer the patient to a higher level of care. The one-day course includes interactive lectures on both medical procedures and communication strategies and three team performance scenarios. This course is designed for individuals who are involved in the care of the injured patient, including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, prehospital personnel, technicians, and administrative support.

Fundamental Critical Care Support Course 15.25 CME

The FCCS Curriculum is intended to introduce principles important in the initial care of critically ill/injured patients to physicians, physicians-in-training, nurses, and other healthcare providers who may or may not be skilled in critical care but who must care for such patients during early stabilization and in anticipation of the arrival of an intensivists, specialist, or pending transfer of the patient to a tertiary center.

Advanced Trauma Life Support® 16 CME

The Advanced Trauma Life Support® (ATLS®) program will teach a systematic, concise approach to the care of a trauma patient. ATLS was developed by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Committee on Trauma (COT). Its courses provide you with a safe and reliable method for immediate management of injured patients.  The course teaches how to assess a patient’s condition, resuscitate and stabilize him or her, and determine if his or her needs exceed a facility’s capacity. It also covers how to arrange for a patient’s inter-hospital transfer and assure that optimum care is provided throughout the process. This course is designed for physicians who care for injured patients.
