  • Safe care for a patient with spinal trauma
  • How to assess and manage head, abdominal, pelvic, and musculoskeletal trauma
  • What’s different when trauma affects pregnant women and paediatric patients
  • What to do in a burns situation and much, much more…

Need for Program

In Australia, deaths resulting from trauma are commonly caused by falls, self-harm, unintentional injury, and transport accidents. Nurses who practice in hospitals, emergency departments, primary health care, and rural or remote area nursing are often the frontline responders or carers of the people who suffer such injuries. Your ability to rapidly assess a person with traumatic injury is essential for harm minimisation. In addition, high-level clinical decision-making combined with evidence-based knowledge ensures that optimum patient-care and better long-term outcomes are achieved for people affected by traumatic injury.

Purpose of Program

The purpose of this seminar is to provide nurses with the current evidence and underpinning principles of best-practice nursing management of people with physical trauma.

Your Learning Outcomes

  • Correlate the underpinning principles of trauma management to the pathophysiology and “mechanism of injury” to achieve the best patient outcomes
  • Provide evidence-based trauma nursing care contingent on the capacity and resources of the setting within which you practice
  • Develop and extend primary assessment skills for a wide range of scenarios to improve short- and long-term patient outcomes
  • Confidently prioritise nursing actions when a complex range of trauma situations occur
