TCAR – Trauma Care After Resuscitation

Programme Description

Unlike trauma education programmes targeted at prehospital and emergency care providers, the Trauma Care and Resuscitation (TCAR) course is specifically designed for acute care, critical care, ward and perioperative nurses. The course will also appeal to other health professionals working in trauma settings.

This live, 20-day programme gives inpatient staff members the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to meet regulatory requirements and provide excellent care to this challenging patient population.


Programme Overview

Part 1

Participants focus on concepts relevant to care of the injured, hospitalized patient:

  • The trauma care spectrum
  • The biomechanics of trauma
  • The body’s response to injury


Part 2

Learners apply information from Part 1 by participating in interactive expanding case scenarios that focus on admission-to-discharge care of patients with injuries to various body regions. Cases include the surgical, medical and nursing management of patients with:

  • Thoracic trauma
  • Abdominal trauma
  • Musculoskeletal trauma
  • Head trauma
  • Spine and spinal cord trauma
