Trauma Patient Management TimeOnline

Have you ever had a trauma patient arrive, and all you can think of is ‘where do I start?’

This course is designed for emergency veterinarians as well as general practitioners around how to deal with traumatic emergencies.

There are many layers of managing trauma patients, from the initial triage and stabilisation through to advanced surgery; monitoring critical patients; and dealing with associated complications. This will be an intensive course where you will develop a broad range of skills and knowledge that you can also apply to many of your other patients as well. We promise it will be challenging but rewarding!
