Conference Brochure

Pediatric Care After Resuscitation (PCAR) Course is organized by Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) Education Programs and will be held from Mar 26 - 27, 2020 at Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas, Austin, Texas, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 2 class days (14 contact hours) or 1 day (7 contact hours).

The target audience for this medical event is useful to physical therapists, paramedics, social workers, dieticians, respiratory therapists, speech and occupational therapists, LVNs/LPNs, and others who interact with pediatric trauma inpatients. 

Course description:
Through instruction and advocacy, the mission of TCAR Education Programs is to expand the knowledge base and clinical reasoning skills of nurses who work with injured patients anywhere along the trauma continuum of care, particularly in the post-resuscitation phase. By partnering with trauma centers and trauma systems, TCAR Education Programs provides adult and pediatric inpatient nurses an outstanding learning experience designed to meet educational goals, improve patient outcomes, and fulfill regulatory requirements.

PCAR (Pediatric Care After Resuscitation) is the pediatric-specific version of the adult focused TCAR course, ideal for nurses who primarily or exclusively care for children. The PCAR course offers emergency, perioperative, critical care, acute care, and rehabilitation nurses the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to address the needs of the hospitalized, injured child. PCAR covers a wide range of pathophysiologic and nursing concepts and is designed to be a broad, core-level program, rather than an advanced or specialty-specific course.

Course Objectives:
By the end of the 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 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 medial, surgical, and nursing interventions for frequently encountered injuries

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
