Trauma on the Road
Case reviews of patients from your area treated at the Bryan Trauma Center. Reginald Burton, MD, trauma director, and others from the trauma team present this interactive program in your community by special arrangement. This program provides a specific focus on the EMT/paramedic role in patient evaluation, triage, packaging and transport and the impact this has when a patient arrives at the Trauma Center. It also includes a review of patient outcomes based on pre-hospital efforts. To arrange this program for your squad, call Deb Schleiger at (402) 481-5658.
Trauma Team Programs
Develop or enhance your hospital's "trauma team" approach. As requested by hospital representatives, Reginald Burton MD, trauma director, and others from the Bryan Trauma Program will develop "trauma team" education for ED personnel, nurses, physicians, EMTs/paramedics and other hospital staff members. Education topics include Advanced Trauma Life Support resuscitation principles, EMS notification, hospital activation and team member roles. Mock traumas are staged to help evaluate a hospital system's response to trauma patients' needs. To arrange this program, call Deb Schleiger at (402) 481-5658.
Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS)
The Trauma Center helped pioneer the international Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) program. The ATLS course is the leading educational program used to train physicians in the key concepts of assessing and stabilizing critically injured patients. Dr. Collicott led a committee of Lincoln physicians who developed the ATLS course, which was adopted by the American College of Surgeons in 1979 as a national trauma educational program for physicians. The course is taught internationally and continues to expand around the world. Our ATLS program coordinator is Corey Mohnike. He can be reached at (402) 481-4476.
