CRIT5019: Advanced Trauma Management

CRIT5019 builds on the foundations laid in Major Trauma Management. The unit of study is based on real cases, with actual dilemmas and clinical pearls. It will prepare registrars and Fellows for a senior role in a trauma service and is also widely relevant to anyone who sees trauma patients during their daily practice. It explores the surgical, medical, psychosocial, and system-related issues in advanced trauma care. Trauma is a diverse and complicated speciality. Improving your knowledge and expertise in trauma at Sydney University has 3 distinct pathways: 1. For a full year of engagement with trauma, enrol in two 6 credit point units of study CRIT 5016 for semester 1 and CRIT 5019 for semester 2. Over the year you will develop your trauma skills from pre-hospital and basic emergency resuscitation to learning key principles of surgical, intensive care, forensics, and ward-based trauma management. Successful completion of this will lead you to graduate with a Sydney Professional Certificate in Trauma 2. If you are a current Masters of Surgery or Masters of Critical Care student, you can also enrol in both courses CRIT 5016 for semester 1 and CRIT 5019 for semester 2 as part of the Masters. 3. If you wish to learn the basics of trauma resuscitation and an overview of the emergency response to a trauma patient then you can enrol in major trauma management CRIT 5016 as a non degree unit of study. 4. If you already have a handle on trauma basics and you want to explore trauma from different angles and different perspectives enrol in CRIT 5019 Advanced Trauma Management for semester 2. This course builds on the trauma basics outlined in CRIT5016 and looks in details at specific issues that arise in the trauma patent after the resuscitation.
