Paediatric Care After Resuscitation

Paediatric Care After Resuscitation

Give employees access to top-notch trauma training anytime, anywhere.

Resuscitation-based courses focus on prehospital and ED care in the initial 3 minutes, 30 minutes, or 3 hours after injury . . . but then what? PCAR was specifically designed to address the learning needs of nurses and other clinicians who care for injured children in emergency, theatre, critical care, ward, and rehab settings BEYOND the resuscitative phase.

Trauma-trained and ready to go!

Provide employees high-quality, population-specific trauma education on demand using TCAR’s newly UPGRADED Anytime, Anywhere format.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Unlike trauma education programmes targeted at prehospital and emergency care providers, the Paediatric Care After Resuscitation (PCAR) course is specifically designed for acute care, critical care, perioperative, and rehab nurses.

Now, for the first time ever, you don’t need to be at a major trauma center (or in a classroom) to experience the world’s highest quality trauma nursing programme. With PCAR, you can receive elite trauma training wherever you are, whenever you are ready to begin.

PCAR employs a case scenario format that follows trauma patients from point of injury to hospital discharge. Learning interactions, knowledge checks, and videos are interspersed throughout to enhance information retention.
