Course Description

2023 Health Coalition Emergency Management Seminar
Trauma Management for Rural EMS and Community Hospitals

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:  The Health Emergency Management Seminar - Trauma Management for Rural EMS And Community Hospitals (T-REACH) is designed to better prepare hospital and non-hospital response partners in planning, mitigating, responding to and recovering from natural and man-made disasters that impact the delivery of health care in a community or impact the environment of care for responders. The goal of the 2023 recorded series/online course is to enhance the skills and knowledge of providers in the rural setting in the management of multi-injured patients and to understand the importance of working as a team of professionals in caring for patients with life-threatening traumatic injuries. Relevant information and stimulated discussions will focus on best practices in the management of trauma/disaster patients.

Based on presentations, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss interventions appropriate to treat hemorrhage, burn and/or shock prior to arrival at a trauma center.
  • Identify which patients require trauma center management and prepare rural communities for the appropriate care and transfer of the injured patient.
  • Develop an awareness on the management and care of critically injured patients in the setting of limited resources.
