About this event

  • Date and time Fri 15 Jan 2021 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Pain Medicine, Anaesthesia

Many clinicians are involved in the complex care of the trauma patient from the pre-hospital arena through the Emergency Department and often into theatre and critical care. Interventions at all these stages could reduce Nociception and pain in order to facilitate recovery and rehabilitation for survivors.

In this two-part webinar series, hear about innovative approaches that cover the entire patient journey rather than only focusing on a single specialty. This thought provoking webinar is an opportunity for 'traumatogist' as well as the generalist to learn how to limit the long-term burden of painful trauma and its early treatment. 

The aim is to teach clinicians about the pre-hospital and early inpatient management of pain in the trauma setting. This will allow cross-disciplinary understanding of the latest techniques deployed to reduce the long term impact and burden of trauma pain management.

During this session, you'll be able to:

  • Understand pre-hospital approaches, in civilian as well as military practice to implement analgesia as early as possible in order to improve pain outcomes
  • Be able to describe the environmental impact of nitrous oxide as deployed in the prehospital setting and Emergency Department
  • Appreciate the challenges of early resuscitation and high-risk ‘damage limitation’ surgery to save lives whilst ensuring pain is also controlled to allow timely recovery and reduce long term pain.

A CPD certificate with 2 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
