Experts from Emory University, USA conducts Collaborative Advanced Trauma Care Course

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.
