POST ECTES 2020 COURSE: International Definitive Surgical Trauma Care Course (DSTCTM)
April 29–May 1, 2020, Oslo University Hospital (OUH), Ullevaal Hospital
The uniqueness of the DSTCTM course, relates to its ability to link trauma decision-making with surgical and anaesthetic strategies and techniques, and the building of an Operating Room trauma team. There is an integral relation in the course between the probability of organ injury and the decision-making process, and these two philosophies must be reflected in the presentations and interactions. It is important that technique presentations relate only to technique and avoid the reintroduction of injury pattern and demographics, as these must be confined to those presentations
The course is a mixture of lecture-based learning, case discussion, and surgical/anaesthetic skills, demonstrated and practiced, and involves
• Probabilities of organ injury
• Technical surgical/anaesthetic strategies
• Decision making in trauma surgery
• Group discussions drawing on the experience of the course Faculty
• Practical sessions training the skills required
Course dates: April 29–May 1, 2020.
The Norwegian DSTC course has been heavily team-based and multidisciplinary since the first course in 2006 due to this tradition with earlier trauma courses. Our courses include 18 surgeons and 6 full teams consisting of anaesthesiologists, operating room nurses and nurse anaesthetists. You don’t want to miss this opportunity for team-oriented trauma training with a superb international faculty.
Course venue Norway: Oslo University Hospital (OUH), Ullevaal Hospital
