Abstract:
Attempts to improve the standard of early trauma management through the training and instruction of medical personnel have had variable results. Knowledge of trauma care is inadequate among all grades of medical and paramedical staff, and not much improvement has been made by the availability of instruction courses in trauma management. Staff most likely to attend such courses are seemingly already more proficient than staff who choose not to. To achieve maximum benefit from future courses, therefore, we believe attendance should be compulsory for all personnel involved in acute trauma care.
