ANZCA Trainees and Fellows – ETM Qualifies for ANZCA CPD

Are you an Australian or New Zealand Anaesthetic Registrar or Fellow? Then we would love to see you at an ETM Course.

Participants in the ANZCA and FPM CPD program may now claim ETM Course as a Major Haemorrhage emergency response activity in their CPD portfolio.

Activity recognition details

Recognition code: ER-19-MH-021

Emergency response activity: Major Haemorrhage

Participants may also claim time spent under the Knowledge and skills Short format learning activity at 2 credits per hour (up to 42 credits). Details are in the ANZCA CPD Handbook.

In most hospitals Anaesthetists and Anaesthetic Registrars attend trauma calls and are required to function as part of the trauma team, usually to manage the airway, however depending on location and staff skill mix, they may be required to team lead the trauma resuscitation.  It is therefore important that our anaesthetic colleagues know how to function effectively in an ED team-based resuscitation setting. No other course teaches this.

Anaesthetic-relevant content on ETM:

  • Review and practice trauma airway skills including surgical airway and the Vortex approach to the unanticipated difficult airway
  • Learn how to function as a trauma team member and trauma team leader in a non-operating-theatre environment
  • Learn resuscitation room management skills
  • Update your knowledge on anaesthetic-relevant topics such as vascular access, massive transfusion, damage control surgery and resuscitative thoracotomy
