PATC – Pediatric Advanced Trauma Course

The Pediatric Advanced Trauma Course is a new national initiative, built by a multidisciplinary team of trauma and simulation experts from across Canada, including ACH’s Trauma Experts, Drs. Adam Cheng and Angelo Mikrogianakis. This 2-day immersive course is designed to increase the learners’ knowledge and comfort with managing paediatric trauma. Starting from primary survey and initial resuscitation, the course provides an interactive approach to teaching around both common and rare trauma cases. The innovative course format will include high fidelity simulation and procedural skills training. The course has been designed to optimize small group, interactive learning in a highly realistic simulated environment. 

 Learning Objectives:

  • Review and practice primary and secondary surveys
  • Enhance and improve your trauma management with team-based simulated trauma scenarios
  • Practice and improve your comfort with trauma procedures, including central line insertion, chest tube insertion and pericardiocentesis
  • Discuss common and rare trauma cases and approach to management
  • Become more comfortable with the differences between adult and pediatric trauma
