Scottish Acute Major Trauma Team Training – a bespoke, multidisciplinary, multispecialty, Scottish national trauma simulation course focussed on safe, person centred, effective acute in-hospital trauma care.
Our primary course objective is to ensure the task – trauma patient MDT based initial assessment and management – is performed safely on the basis of sound scientific understanding, decision making and analysis. This will be tailored to the professional standards, clinical governance, ethical and medicolegal contexts and frameworks pertinent to contemporary Scotland.
The high fidelity nature will ensure a ‘psychologically realistic’ fully immersive educational environment as close to day to day practice as possible. There will be a strong emphasis on human factors and non-technical skills.
As the course progresses participants will gain opportunities to review key learning and create links between concepts and deepen their understanding of 21st century trauma care in the Scottish context including linkage to the Scottish Trauma Audit Group and the developing Scottish Trauma Network.
Medical participants will be assumed to have at least ATLS level knowledge and skills. Nursing and allied health professionals would benefit from at least TILS (Trauma Intermediate Life Support) or equivalent MTNG level 1 training.
