The Primary Trauma Care programme is a course designed to train anaesthetists, surgeons and others in the systematic review and management of severe trauma victims at the District Hospital. Over the last 10 years, many individuals have been involved in training, empowering and supporting doctors and nurses in a number of countries. Local programmes and training courses are increasingly co-ordinated by regional offices in South America, India, China, Indonesia, the South Pacific and Africa. The Primary Trauma Care Foundation continues to support these regional offices in their need for qualified instructors, fund-raising, and for updating educational material. With anaesthetic support, the Primary Trauma Care Foundation will continue to empower anaesthetists worldwide as they work with their surgical colleagues to treat severely injured patients in areas where, previously, due to inadequate resources and training, comprehensive treatment was not available.
