We are excited to share with you our brand-new Trauma Care White Board Video. Based upon an identified need for trauma education resources, we sought to create a unique video that delivers high yield information on community trauma management and transport. This project was a collaborative effort with input from a diverse group of community and academic pediatric and adult trauma care providers and covers important commonalities and differences when caring for diverse patient populations. Of note, the video briefly references Ontario specific trauma services, however, the core content of the video is applicable to trauma care across Canada.

Our hope is to reach as large an audience as possible, and with your help we look to have a coordinated release of the video on March 8th 2018. This would include posting an active link on your website as well as sharing broadly over social media platforms and mailing lists.

We would sincerely appreciate participation from those interested in providing feedback/constructive criticism that will inform future projects and serve to elevate innovation in medical education going forward.

We sincerely appreciate your time and effort in sharing this project, please find the active link below and the transport checklists that are on the website as well.
