Western Trauma Course - Northam

The Western Trauma Course (WTC) provides rural and remote health care practitioners with the education, re-training and re-skilling to successfully assess, triage and manage acute trauma patients.

The course develops and promotes a team approach to managing trauma and provides ready access to training and education in the rural setting.

The WTC covers the essential components of early trauma management through a combination of:

  • lectures
  • interactive tutorials
  • graphic demonstrations
  • practical hands on skill stations.

Participants receive a course manual approximately 3 weeks before the course and are provided with a certificate of attendance on completion.

Course participants will:

  • learn new skills
  • refresh skills not practised for some time
  • gain confidence to deal with trauma patients
  • gain knowledge in how to best organise their departments to receive trauma patients.

The WTC course is heavily subsidised by the Department of Health.

The costs are as follows:

  • medical staff and Non WA Health employee – $550.00 including GST
  • nursing staff, students, ambulance officers – $420.00 including GST
