RTTDC® was developed by the American College of Surgeons to address the educational needs specific to rural hospitals. RTTDC® is currently in 4th edition format. This one-day course highlights how to employ a team approach starting with the primary assessment, resuscitation and transfer of a trauma patient to the appropriate trauma centre.

The intended audience includes individuals who are involved in the care of the injured patient, including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, pre-hospital personnel, technicians and administrative support.

The course provides additional NB Trauma Program content to assist healthcare professionals how to best use available resources and relationships within the NBTP.
