2024 Trauma University: This Little Piggy...Not!

TCAA's Trauma University is designed to provide practitioners with cutting edge clinical education. This immersive journey unravels the intricacies of geriatric trauma management, highlighting both challenges and successes, with a special focus on the distinctive landscape of rural trauma care. Mr. M is an 87-year-old patient who presented to a non-trauma designated hospital after being trampled by pigs. He reports he was on the family farm when he was “knocked down and kicked by 4 pigs.” The OSH transferred him to a level 1 trauma center for polytrauma. On Day 11, patient is transferred to rehab.

This session goes beyond the clinical aspect, shedding light on how challenges in trauma care have influenced outreach and education. Gain a deeper understanding of how these experiences have shaped the development of outreach programs and educational initiatives, incorporating the specific resources available in diverse settings.
