Conference Brochure

Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) Course is organized by Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) Education Programs and will be held from Dec 14 - 15, 2020 at Desert Regional Medical Center, Palm Springs, California, United States of America.

Target Audience:
Unlike Resuscitation-Focused Trauma verification courses, TCAR (Trauma Care After Resuscitation) and PCAR (the pedi-specific class) are designed for nurses who practice anywhere along the trauma care continuum, from prehospital to rehabilitation. TCAR and PCAR present trauma nursing care as a process that spans all hospital units and specialty areas, while emphasizing physiologic principles, patient assessment, nursing interventions outcome evaluation, and cross-specialty collaboration.

Continuing Education Hours
TCAR Education Programs (a division of VisionEm Inc.) is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. Continuing education contact hours are also provided through Visionem Inc., a provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number CEP 15483. To receive a certificate of completion, learners must submit an online course evaluation and attend 2 class days (14 contact hours) or 1 day (7 contact hours).

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.

Unlike standardized trauma programs targeted at prehospital and emergency care providers, the Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) course was specifically created to meet the learning needs of INPATIENT trauma nurses. This live, 2-day educational offerings give hospital staff members the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to meet regulatory requirements and provide excellent care to this challenging patient population.

The TCAR course offers emergency, perioperative, critical care, and acute care, and rehabilitation nurses the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to address the needs of the hospitalized trauma patient.

TCAR 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. Although registered nurses are TCAR's target audience, the information contained in this program has proven useful to physical therapists, paramedics, social workers, dietitians, respiratory therapists, speech and occupational therapists, LVNs/LPNs, and others who interact with the hospitalized trauma patient.

TCAR Learner Outcomes:
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

• Interact with interdisciplinary team members to provide timely care to injured patients
