Definitive Perioperative Nurses Trauma Care (DPNTC)

The Definitive Perioperative Nurses Trauma Care (DPNTC) course is held in conjunction with the Definitive Surgical Trauma Care (DSTC) course.

It is aimed at Registered Nurses with experience in perioperative nursing and is an opportunity for Perioperative Nurses to focus on surgical decision making and operative techniques in the care of critically ill trauma patients. This essential course aims to foster teamwork and collaboration in the multidisciplinary care of the surgical trauma patient. The unique lecture program and surgical operative laboratory gives the perioperative nurse insight into difficult trauma situations.

For perioperative nurses, the DPNTC course provides equivalent hours towards annual continuing professional development (CPD) as outlined by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
