HECTOR in Scotland – The silver trauma course!

More information and how to book this course can be found on the Scottish Trauma Network.


HECTOR began as the Heartlands Elderly Care Trauma and Ongoing Recovery course that was established to develop a training programme for clinicians and independent practitioners who are responsible for looking after older people who have injuries.

These injuries that an individual sustains often play second fiddle to the complex comorbidities, frailty, and the challenges of caring for them within an ever-pressured emergency care system.

The 2-day course mixes practical scenarios, moulages, lectures and discussions, focusing on the specific care needs of this group of patients.
