Trauma Patient Management - TimeOnline
Have you ever had a trauma patient arrive, and all you can think of is ‘where do I start?
This course on how to deal with traumatic emergencies is designed for general practitioners as well as emergency veterinarians.
There are many layers of managing trauma patients, from the initial triage and stabilisation through to advanced surgery; monitoring critical patients; and dealing with associated complications. This will be an intensive course where you will develop a broad range of skills and knowledge that you can also apply to many of your other patients as well. We promise it will be challenging but rewarding!
I enjoy these TimeOnline courses and I strongly recommend it to improve your knowledge and daily practice!
