BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Trauma Evaluation and Management course from the American College of Surgeons was developed for medical students and residents as a focused, one way approach to the assessment and early management/care of the trauma patient.

TEAM (Trauma Evaluation and Management) introduces the concepts of trauma assessment and management to medical students during their clinical years. The core content is adapted from the ACS Advanced Trauma Life Support® (ATLS) course. Developed by the ATLS® Committee of the ACS Committee on Trauma, TEAM is an expanded version of the ATLS "Initial Assessment and Management" lecture.

The faculty and education practitioners identified this program as an ideal “introductory” training program for Health First’s Emergency Department RN’s and Medic’s, as well as other multi-disciplinary providers (I.e., PCU, ICU, OR, etc.) related to the trauma patient.

Tuesday’s course was attended by Health First Holmes Regional ED RN’s and they were later joined by Paramedic students during the practical scenarios that took place in Trauma/AR.

“We found them to be fully engaged in their learning, eager to participate and very thankful for the opportunity,” said the Health First Facebook page.

“We look forward to the opportunity to provide this education to the balance of the Emergency Department associates identified and throughout the Health First system.”
