Course Description

This is an exciting virtual online course for all healthcare providers that presents A Multi–Systems Approach to Pediatric Trauma. This is true "edutainment" with streaming video, rich multimedia and interactive instruction. The module format utilizes a user friendly, visually interesting interface to navigate through the pages. Filmed video segments begin a module with the medical interviewer and interviewee introducing themselves and the module. A pediatric trauma scenario is filmed with talented volunteers who act out the scenes. The filmed interview portion comments on and discusses the scenario to provide the teaching and instruction. Flash animated Video Recaps and interactive Apply Your Knowledge questions complete the repeating format.

Each module presents a different facet of the Multi–Systems Approach and how they interface and interact together to medically treat the pediatric trauma patient.  These multi-systems are described below and are covered in the course.

  • Trauma to different body systems in children (ie head neck & spine; abdomen & chest; musculoskeletal...)
  • Care and treatment by various healthcare providers (ie physicians, nurses, paramedics, EMT's)
  • Patient presentation to various healthcare facilities, rural and urban, for care (ie clinics, local emergency room, major trauma center
  • Various transport modes (ie fire EMS, ambulance, helicopter)
  • Preparation for pediatric trauma in various settings (ie EMS, ER, clinic)
  • Local New Mexico specialty experts interviewed (emergency manager, surgeon, specialty physicians...)
