I am delighted to hear that Dr Andy Buck and team are running an ETM course in Adelaide in October this year. ETM is a great course for anyone involved in the trauma team – EM docs, anaesthetists, rural docs, surgeons, intensivists.
I teach and Direct on the international ATLS-EMST programme – and whilst I believe in the usefulness of the ATLS approach for the initial management of trauma, it frustrates me that the ATLS course is aimed at a fairly basic level, doesnt cover anything to do with trauma team management and omits much of the useful #FOAMed quality education that is available.
ETM covers all this. You can read a review of ETM by Dr Jeram Hyde from one of the early Melbourne-based courses in November last year.
Better still, get yourself along to ETM in Adelaide this October – its way cheaper than EMST, shorter wait list to get on a course and has way better content for modern trauma management!
I hope to see some of you there! Get in quick though….
