Western Trauma Course - Kalgoorlie

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, and is specifically aimed to meet the needs of rural and remote health care professionals, considering such issues as sparse population, limited medical facilities and staffing, and longer transport times.

The course has now been fully revised and major changes have been made to make the course more interactive, provide more opportunities to practise hands on skills, as well as run through full trauma case scenarios. A pre-course eLearning module has been developed following a patient’s journey from crash scene through to retrieval for tertiary care, and covers topics such as scene safety, the initial assessment process, communication, secondary survey and the need for transfer.

The course qualifies for the Emergency Procedures Grant. At the completion of the course all participants receive a certificate of attendance and CPD Points. The Western Trauma Course (WTC) is accredited for;

  • ACEM: 9.75 ACEM CPD hours
  • ACRRM: 11 Educational Activity and 2 Performance Review PDP hours. 2 EM MOPS hours
