“Not your Typical Trauma"
Caring for patients with severe traumatic injuries can be difficult enough but what do you do when your patient is very young, very old or very pregnant or very large? “Special populations” is the term we use to identify patients for whom we need new tools and different rules for trauma care. This program shows you how to ensure an informed size-up, systematic assessment and delivery of effective, prioritized trauma care for the most challenging patients that you’ll encounter.
