Trauma & Emergency Healthcare Education
Providing Training and Continuing Education to Texas First Responders and Healthcare Professionals
Achieving excellence in the delivery of trauma, emergency and neonatal patient care is an ongoing goal for TETAF. Therefore, we offer a number of educational opportunities throughout the year, including Hospital Data Management; EMS Data Management; regional cardiac, stroke and trauma seminars; and a Trauma Injury Prevention Symposium (TIPS).
TETAF is an approved provider of continuing nursing education and an approved provider of continuing education for emergency medical services providers. Additional educational events can be found on the calendar page.
Registration details will be available here as courses are scheduled. We would also love to work with you to bring our educational courses to your area of the state. For more information contact Brenda Putz, TETAF Vice President of Operations.
Continuing TETAF's commitment to the Stop the Bleed campaign, we will continue to offer BCon (bleeding control) courses throughout the year. This course has been developed for direct training for immediate responders (lay personnel) and professional first responders in external hemorrhage control in response to a call from the Hartford Consensus for direct training.
Hospital Data Management Course
This course is designed to improve the skill sets of the data entry specialist specific to data input, data abstraction and statistical reporting, which are used to improve the state’s emergency care system.
EMS Data Management Course
The annual TETAF EMS data management course focuses on the National Emergency Medical Services Information System and the data dictionary. This course is designed for physicians, nurses, EMTs and paramedics responsible for, or with an interest in, submitting data to the Texas EMS Trauma Registry.
Trauma Injury Prevention Symposium (TIPS)
This one-day bi-annual seminar provides valuable information to help all levels of designated trauma centers implement a coordinated, multidisciplinary evidence-based approach to injury prevention or enhance existing programs.
Regional Education in Collaboration with RACs
TETAF also works with RACS to provide regional education on topics including trauma, stroke and STEMI. Contact TETAF for more information on courses tailored to your region.
