The CENA Trauma Nursing Program (CENA TNP) is an important initiative in trauma education for nurses in Australia. Australasian in context, this program provides instruction on the principles of trauma care, the opportunity to explore skills relevant to the trauma setting and seeks to develop the ability of Australian nurses to deliver trauma care in a variety of settings.
The Emergency Care Module has been developed for registered nurses providing emergency care to trauma patients across the lifespan, in metropolitan and rural departments. It also addresses issues faced in more remote settings. This module aims to build upon your theoretical knowledge and practice in Emergency Nursing, to develop your assessment and management in the area of common trauma conditions and related clinical skills.
Building upon nurses existing knowledge and skills, the program is designed primarily to equip nurses who are required to manage trauma patients for the short term, whilst awaiting transport or on an occasional basis. However, the program structure also enables nurses exposed frequently to trauma to develop a greater understanding of pathophysiology, assessment and management of trauma patients. Thus making these programs suitable to nurses with a variety of experience and knowledge.
All workshops are facilitated by experienced clinicians from around Australia, who use interactive teaching and case based discussion to deliver theory and practical sessions.
