Definitive Surgical Trauma Care Course


The Definitive Surgical Trauma Care Course (DSTC) is an invigorating, exciting opportunity to focus on:

• Surgical decision-making in complex scenarios

• Operative technique in critically ill trauma patients

• Hands on practical experience with experienced instructors (both national and international)

• Insight into difficult trauma situations with learned techniques of haemorrhage control and the ability to handle major thoracic, cardiac and abdominal injuries

In conjunction with many DSTC courses the Definitive Perioperative Nurses Trauma Care Course (DPNTC) is held. It is aimed at registered nurses with experience in perioperative nursing and allows them to develop these skills in a similar setting. The Military Module is an optional third day for interested surgeons and Australian Defence Force Personnel. DSTC is recommended by The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons for all Consultant Surgeons and final year trainees who participate in care of the injured. It is considered essential for surgeons involved in the management of major trauma and those working in remote, regional and rural areas.
