Course description: 

Emergency medicine encompasses many clinical specialties of which imaging services play a large role. Although emergency medicine includes both trauma and non-trauma cases, it is important for imaging staff to understand where they fit in the emergency department team in order to systematically care for the trauma patient. Facilities at all levels provide emergency medical care. These can range from major metropolitan medical centers to small rural emergency rooms. The function of the imaging staff is vital to the care of all emergency patients.

Part 1 of the two part module will touch on certain aspects of trauma, trauma center levels, the trauma team and best practices in dealing with emergency department patients. Specific trauma positioning will not be addressed.
