European Trauma Course (ETC)
8th- 10th February 2010
(eligible for 15 National CME points)


Course description

The ETC is an innovative course which emphasizes the team approach in the management of the seriously injured. It is aimed at doctors who are expected to lead and participate in trauma teams on their work set-up.  

The course is mainly ‘hands on’ and runs over 2 days. During the first 2 days various topics related to Trauma Resuscitation will be taught. Throughout the course candidates will actively participate in skill stations, workshops and scenario based teaching, - all of which reflect current European practice. During these scenarios candidates will have the opportunity to participate both as team leaders and team members on many occasions.

Participants are expected to be familiar with Basic and Advanced Life Support and to have read the enclosed pre-course CD. On the third day there will be final practice workshops and assessments in the form of scenarios where the candidates are expected to show solid team leadership skills. Only successful candidates will be given certificates. 

This course is supported by the Malta Resuscitation Council (MRC), European Resuscitation Council(ERC) , European Society of Trauma Surgeons (ESTES), European Society of Emergency Medicine (EuSEM) and the European Society of Anaesthesiologists (ESA).
