Teamwork plays an important role in the management of severely injured patients. As much as surgeons need to be trained in trauma surgery, nurses should also be equipped with sound knowledge of their treatment and management.
The Definitive Surgical Trauma Care Course (DSTC) course is developed under the auspices of the International Association for Trauma Surgery and Intensive Care (IATSIC). It is currently the most advanced trauma course available internationally.
Trauma Care is changing all the time and many situations require specialist trauma expertise. The Definitive Anaesthetic Trauma Care (DATC) course is designed to train the anaesthesiologist/intensivist, advanced trainee in strategic thinking and decision-making in the management of the severely injured patients and provide them with practical skills to manage difficult resuscitations.
