The departments of Postgraduate Medical Education, Emergency Medicine and Surgery at the Indus Hospital in collaboration with specialists from Grady Memorial Hospital – Emory University developed a certificate program, ‘Collaborative Advanced Trauma Care’ to train multidisciplinary emergency and trauma team of the Indus Hospital. The course curriculum was developed according to the findings of an in-hospital survey which identified a high burden of severely injured patients seeking care at TIH.
Attended by 15 Emergency Medicine residents and Medical Officers, 6 residents from Urology, Orthopedics, General Surgery, and Anesthesia, and 14 Emergency Resuscitation nurses, the month long program aimed to build trauma care knowledge and practices through didactic learning, hands-on procedure practice, simulation, ultrasound training, and team-building activities.
The trainers include senior Emergency Medicine physician and nurse from Grady Memorial Hospital – Emory University and senior Emergency Medicine physicians from the Indus Hospital. The customized course will help the emergency and trauma team at the Indus Hospital to provide well-coordinated, comprehensive, and compassionate care to trauma patients.
