This new addition to the EPICC Education program is based on the National Emergency Nurses Association (NENA) Core Competencies of the Emergency Nurse. These Core Competencies are available on the NENA website at http://www.nena.ca/. Using small group, large group and simulation, the course focuses on the Emergency Trauma care of the adult.
The course is a mixture of pre-course online modules, classroom, small group case practice/simulation and psychomotor skill stations.
There is a customized evaluation process before and throughout the course. There is no formal written or practical examination. The evaluation process is one-on-one with an instructor and involves the individualized assessment of your skills and development of future learning goals.
The EPICC-Trauma course is a part of the NENA EPICC program. This course usually requires completion of the EPICC-Foundations course beforehand but this requirement will be waived for conference participants as access to EPICC-Foundations in Atlantic Canada has been limited. There will be additional online preparation before the EPICC-Trauma program and a longer education day to ensure the best educational experience for the learners.
