Description

This module aims to develop participants core knowledge and skills relating to the assessment, initial management and care of the polytrauma patient.
A range of traumatic injuries will be explored but the focus will be upon initial assessment and management of these patients in the context of the emergency department.

 

 

Who is this module for?

Experienced emergency care nurses and operating department practitioners (ODPs) who have previously undertaken core emergency care education or equivalent.

Assessment

Usual assessment: Essay and Moulage

NOTE - TEMPORARY ASSESSMENT CHANGE: Due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements, this module has a modified assessment in place: Essay with case study. The modified assessment will apply to module runs starting from September 2020 and will remain in place until social distancing requirements can be sufficiently relaxed to allow on-site, face-to-face assessment. At the time of writing, it is not known when this will be. 

Learning Outcomes
