The NTI convention was a success. One thing that many NTI conventioneers asked for was a trauma
forum. This topic came up many times so we have decided to add 2 new forums to allnurses.com
The first one can be found under Critical Care Nursing
... Trauma ICU
The Trauma ICU is for discussions related to critically injured patients. This can be an isolated injury or involve multi-organ systems. Trauma patients have their own range of needs; from preventing sepsis and compartment syndrome to helping families deal with devastating loss.
The second one can be found under Nursing Specialties.
.. Trauma Nursing
The Trauma Nursing forum was developed to discuss trauma-related cases from the ED, to the med-surg unit and through rehabilitation. This can involve stabilizing the acutely injured patient, dealing with impending crises, and implementing new policies. Please come in and discuss how you cope with chaos and catastrophe as it relates to our critically injured patients.
Please drop in and say hello.
