Life changes: Rehabilitation following trauma

RCN Defence Nursing Workshop 2019

23 Feb 2019 10:30 - 15:00

Birmingham City University , Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences, Westbourne Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham , B15 3TN

Bookings now open for this workshop exploring rehabilitation following trauma.

Trauma remains a significant cause of mortality worldwide, the World Health Organization estimates trauma kills more people every year than HIV, TB and malaria combined and is the leading cause of death amongst males aged between 15 and 29 years. In the UK, trauma kills 46 people every day. Regardless of the mechanism of injury, rehabilitation following traumatic injury starts at the point of injury.

Open to RCN members and non-members alike, this workshop will support nurses working across a variety of specialities that support trauma patients throughout the patient pathway.

By the end of this workshop delegates will be able to:
Understand the key principles of rehabilitation following trauma;
Gain an insight into the rehabilitation pathway following trauma from a civilian, military and resource constrained perspective;
Share ideas of best-practice to promote translation between different professional groups. 

This workshop will enable you to share best practice and to keep you up to date on latest developments, current evidence and thinking in trauma rehabilitation.

Please check the website in the coming weeks for further updates.
