Acidents happen. Soft tissue get injured, bones break, joints dislocate.
How the trauma patients are managed within the first 24 hours can be critical for their survival and successful recovery.
This one day course will try to cover all the basics of initial patient assessment and stabilisation, through more detailed orthopaedic and neurological assessment.
We will consider appropriate pain management and first aid for open wounds and fractures.

  1. Initial and late patient evaluation
  2. First aid for open wounds and fractures
