Plenary Session: A Deployed Combat Support Hospital & A Civilian Level 1 Trauma Center: What's the Difference?

Joseph Blansfield, MSN, RN, ANP-BC, TCRN
An Army Combat Support Hospital in Iraq for a year is compared to a Level 1 Trauma Center in the northeast. Both are the highest level of care available within a defined trauma system. The structure and capabilities are described including unique challenges of providing state of the art trauma care in austere conditions with limited resources. Trauma Registries from both were used to describe mechanisms of injury, patient volume, capabilities, procedures performed and dispositions/evacuations.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand the similarities and differences between a Combat Support Hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center
  2. Appreciate the challenges and expectations of providing world class trauma care in a war zone.
  3. Apply the lessons learned in the military and how they transfer to civilian trauma care.

Craig Field, PhD, MPH

To prevent re-traumatization, health care providers need to be aware of the impact of cumulative psychological trauma. This study sponsored by the Society of Trauma Nurses grant assessed changes in 429 healthcare provider’s attitudes related to trauma-informed care using the ARCTIC Scale following a 1.5-hour training. The results from the pre-training (M = 5.35, SD =.62) and post-training (M = 5.67, SD = .74) scores on the ARCTIC were significantly increased, t(42-12.6) = -126, p = .0001.

Learning Objectives:
  1. At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to define Trauma-Informed Care principles in Trauma Care.
  2. At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to discuss the ARTIC scale and how utilization can determine attitudes towards Trauma-Informed Care practices.
  3. At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to identify key components of Trauma-Informed Care Training for healthcare providers and advocates.
