The trauma department at St. Joseph Health regularly hosts continuing education classes for trauma certifications. In 2018, we will host two nationally recognized and accredited courses at St. Joseph Health.
Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS)
This class will be hosted on two separate dates, April 11-12, 2019 and October 10-11, 2019. It is a 2 full day course and a requirement for multiple practitioners (trauma physicians, ER physicians, Advanced Practitioners and residents) that practice in an accredited trauma center. Participants obtain over 17 CE credits which they need to remain current and it is valid for 4 years after the date they attend.
Fundamental Critical Care Spport (FCCS)
This class improves the quality of care and education of non-board certified staff members (CCU nurses, residents, hospitalist) We will host that class in the summer June 20 and 21, 2019.
Trauma Grand Rounds
Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to explain the basics of tactical medicine, recognize the expectations of the tactical physician, and differentiate the roles of tactical officers. St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital is accredited by the Texas Medical Association to provide continuing medical education for physicians. This class will be held every third Wednesday of every month, with the exception of December, from 7:00 to 8:00 A.M.
Rural Trauma Team Development Course (RTTDC)
Developed by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma, RTTDC is based on the concept that in most situations, rural facilities can form a trauma team consisting of at least core members. RTTDC will be held on the following dates:
March 22, 2019 - Madisonville
September 6, 2019 - Burleson
