Trauma Nurses Talk Tough (About Saving Your Life).
This community health education program was created to educate kids about trauma. The program combines straight talk and examples of real trauma situations to convince kids who are healthy to stay that way by practicing safe behaviors. The message is delivered by trauma nurses who have seen trauma first hand, have the stories to tell, and care about what happens to children. This program is available to kids from kindergarten through high school and can be customized accordingly to fit a classroom or assembly format.
Each year, Trauma Services sponsors an all-day educational program for emergency caregivers, nurses, firefighters and other health care professionals interested in trauma care. The symposium focuses on prevention issues and hot topics in trauma care.
