The Definitive Surgical Trauma Care (DSTC) course has been developed for surgeons who may be faced with the definitive care of a patient with multiple injuries. Since best possible in-hospital care needs a coordinated multimodal approach by an informed and trained team and in most settings the in-hospital team of acute trauma care will consist of nursing staff, surgeons, anaesthetists and intensivists, the Definitive Anaesthetic Trauma Care (DATC) course has been developed in order to help anaesthetists and intensivists to develop trauma related competencies focusing on Damage Control Resuscitation.
The DATC course covers the Damage Control period until re-operation for definitive treatment and is always given together with the DSTC. the position within IATSIC and the integrated organizational structure of both DSTC and DATC reflects the will for a close cooperation between the surgical, anaesthetic and intensive care teams; mutual understanding of the concepts and procedures specific to each speciality will in fact ultimately lead to an improved patient outcome.
The combined DSTCTM and DATC course is an intensive 3-day course
that consists of keynote lecturers, multidisciplinary case presentations, fireside discussions and workshops.
During the course surgeons, anaesthesiologists and operating room nurses work together as real trauma teams.
