Advanced Surgical Skills For Exposure In Trauma (ASSET™)

The Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma (ASSETâ„¢) Course uses human cadavers to teach surgical exposure of anatomic structures that, when injured, may pose a threat to life or limb. The one-day course provides an overview of surgical exposures in key areas: neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis, and upper and lower extremities. Each section begins with a short case-based overview, followed by a hands-on exposure performed by students under the guidance of faculty.

The intended audience includes mid-level and senior surgical residents, trauma and acute care surgical fellows, or any surgeon who wishes to undertake a review of this anatomy. Visit the ASSET™ website

Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS)

The Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) Provider Course is an eight-hour course for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, and paramedics. This live, hands-on course is designed to provide the "how-to" of emergency care of the burn patient through the first 24-hour critical time period. Following a series of lectures, case studies are presented for group discussions. An opportunity to work with a simulated burn patient to reinforce the assessment, stabilization, and the American Burn Association transfer criteria to a Burn Center will be provided. Testing consists of a written exam and a practical assessment.

Adults benefit from experiential learning, which is why simulation training has been shown to be an effective method of teaching. Traditional teaching methods are not particularly effective in adult learning, and even less so in team-oriented training exercises. This is because it is important for adults to make sense of what they experience and observe.

The more opportunities healthcare providers have to practice scenarios, the better prepared they will be for difficult cases with real patients. One of the most effective features of simulation is the chance for hands-on practice with human manikin simulators, which not only advances knowledge, skill and attitude, but also protects real patients from unnecessary risks.
