Injury amongst people in Australia is a major reason for mortality, morbidity, and permanent disability. Most injuries result from falls and men are the most likely to suffer injury. But, approximately 8% of all deaths are related to injury and trauma whether accidental or self-inflicted. Location also has a significant impact. Nurses who practice in hospitals, emergency departments, primary health care, and rural or remote area nursing are often the frontline responders or carers for those who suffer such injuries. The ability to rapidly assess a person with traumatic injury is essential for harm minimisation. In addition, high-level clinical decision-making, combined with evidence-based knowledge is essential for optimum patient care and better long-term outcomes for people affected by physical trauma.
The purpose of this seminar is to provide nurses with the current evidence and underpinning principles of best-practice nursing management for people with physical trauma.
