Providing Training and Continuing Education to Texas First Responders and Health Care Professionals

Trauma & Emergency Health Care Education

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.

Registration details will be available here as courses are scheduled. We welcome the opportunity to work with you to bring our educational courses to your area in Texas. For more information, contact Brenda Putz, vice president of operations, or Kathy Clayton, survey coordinator.

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.
