December 12 Multi-Disciplinary Trauma Training

December 12, 2019 to December 13, 2019

This is a live training at the Irwin Army Community Hospital that will last one and half days for interprofessional training for Army Soldiers. The purpose of this event is to increase Medical Readiness within the Irwin Army Community Hospital and Fort Riley Service Members in order to maintain individual critical readiness tasks and ensure a ready medical force. The hope is that this will be a semi-annual event.

Day one of the training will consist of didactic training, hands-on round robin, and day two will be for group simulations. Topic areas include Airway Management, Burns, Thoracic Trauma, Shock and Head and Extremity Trauma.

The 20 participants divide into teams of five and will consist of a Provider, a Registered Nurse, a Licensed Practical Nurse, and two Medics. They will be given two scenarios that will include the skills they learned the previous day.
