Trauma Speakers Series

Join us on the second Wednesday of each month as our trauma team discusses topics relevant to caring for trauma patients. At Children’s Minnesota, we’re specialized in everything, and ready for anything.

Course description: Children's Trauma Speakers Series: The ABC's of Pediatric Trauma is designed to strengthen the trauma assessment skills of front-line care giver’s ability to recognize signs of life-threatening injuries and facilitate early intervention for positive outcomes of the pediatric patient. Through use of case scenario discussions, the learner will engage in early identification of injury and anticipation of needed treatments and on-going care from stabilization through recovery. A series of six presentations reviews the components of the primary assessment and application within a team setting.

Course outcomes:

1. Use case reviews to highlight the importance of ongoing assessment of the injured child to identify injuries and promote recovery

2. Review assessment skills important to the early identification of traumatic injury in children and associated complications
