Rural Trauma Team Development Course (RTTDC)

Cost: Free

The Rural Trauma Team Development Course (RTTDC) emphasizes a team approach to the initial evaluation and resuscitation of the trauma patient at an outlying rural facility.

With more than 60 percent of the country’s trauma deaths occurring in rural areas, this course assists health care professionals in determining the need to transfer the patient to a higher level of care.

The one-day course includes interactive lectures on:

  • Both medical procedures
  • Communication strategies
  • Three-team performance scenarios
