Critical Care Advanced Transfer Training
The CCATT course is aimed at all those involved with the transport of critically ill patients including doctors, nurses, ODPs, paramedics and ambulance/emergency technicians.
Patients with multiple, serious injuries may need to be transferred to one of 22 of the new major trauma centres set up in England this year. This is a hospital where they can be operated on immediately, if necessary, and where there is a full range of trauma specialists, including orthopaedics, neurosurgery and radiology teams. Care at major trauma centres is led by a trauma consultant, who is available 24 hours a day.
In many cases, patients will be taken directly to one of these centres and then transferred to an appropriate specialist hospital for further treatment. Therefore, as part of the NHS programme of getting patients to the right place for the right treatment, the number of transfers of critically ill or injured patients is likely to increase.
The course provides the most advanced up to date transfer training available in the UK. This intensive one-day course will provide medical personnel with the skills and knowledge needed to make critical care transfer as safe and efficient as possible, improving outcomes and comfort for the patient.
