PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Health Emergency Management Seminar - Trauma Management for Rural EMS And Community Hospitals (T-REACH) is designed to better prepare hospital and non-hospital response partners in planning, mitigating, responding to and recovering from natural and man-made disasters that impact the delivery of health care in a community or impact the environment of care for responders. The goal of the 2021 virtual seminar is to enhance knowledge in the management of multi-injured patients and to understand the importance of working as a team of professionals in caring for patients with life-threatening traumatic injuries in the rural EMS setting and community hospitals. Relevant information and stimulated discussions will focus on best practices in the management of trauma/disaster patients.
