To start this page, I would like to present you with a good hour’s worth of trauma CPD, courtesy of Dr Jon Birks. Jon is a Consultant Anaesthetist at Northampton. He is also a pre-hospital, helimed doc in Wales, so has some pretty extensive trauma experience! He is one of the PHEM chief examiners and one of my FUSIC mentees, now accredited in lung / cardiac and abdominal scanning!

In his talk to our department, he runs through a snappy approach to major trauma, debating many of the myths of the ATLS mantra too. We will continue to populate this page with useful links etc on trauma for you all. Please enjoy!

Other sites!

It would be remiss of me not to mention STH journal club here. Much of the resource set you see above came from them.
