Topic : Major Trauma Emergencies (same topic presented at 4 locations)

In this workshop we will focus on the patient presenting with major trauma and examine the challenges this poses in rural settings. Using a series of clinical cases we will consider the approach to the trauma patient with injuries causing altered conscious state, severe respiratory distress or circulatory shock.

Course Learning Outcomes

  1. Differentiate the clinical presentation, life threats, stabilisation and investigation of the patient presenting with major trauma
  2. Discriminate the procedure for immediate assessment and resuscitation of the patient with life threatening haemorrhage from major trauma
  3. Summarise the differential diagnoses and emergency management for the patient with major chest trauma
  4. Contrast the options for the emergency management of the patient with moderate or severe head trauma
