Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) (Apr 16 - 17, 2018)
Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) is organized by Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) Education Programs and will be held during Apr 16 - 17, 2018 at Morristown Medical Center, Morristown, New Jersey, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 14 Contact Hours.
Unlike trauma verification programs targeted at prehospital and emergency care providers, the Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) course is specifically designed for acute care, critical care, and perioperative nurses. This live, 2-day educational offering provides inpatient staff members with the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to meet regulatory requirements and provide excellent care to this challenging patient population.
Course Overview :
PART 1–Participants focus on concepts relevant to the nursing care of the injured, hospitalized patient:
• The trauma care spectrum
• The biomechanics of trauma
• The body's response to injury
PART 2–Learners participate in interactive, expanding case scenarios that address the needs of hospitalized patients with injuries to major body systems. Each module introduces specific trauma care concepts including pathophysiology, patient assessment, and complications. Surgical, medical, and nursing management options and outcome criteria are introduced while analyzing patients with:
• Thoracic injury
• Abdominal injury
• Musculoskeletal injury
• Craniocerebral injury
• Spine and spinal cord injury
Course Objectives :
By the end of this class, participants will be able to:
• Describe the trauma continuum of care.
• Explain the biomechanics of common injuries.
• Anticipate specific wounds and complications based on the mechanism of injury information.
• Discuss the body's multisystem responses to traumatic insults.
• Incorporate physical assessment, imaging studies, and laboratory data to evaluate the hospitalized trauma patient.
• Describe appropriate medical, surgical, and nursing interventions for frequently encountered injuries.
• Interact with interdisciplinary team members to provide timely care to injured patients.
