Bringing world class trauma training to your local health education provider

The ETC was developed in response to the need for a multidisciplinary team focused trauma course for senior clinical staff. The course brings together all specialities regularly engaged in the initial reception of major trauma patients, to learn and teach together as a team. The course includes the technical and non technical skills required to optimise care of this group of patients.
