The Oregon Trauma Emergency Assessment and Management (T.E.A.M.) course is designed to provide a foundation of knowledge for nurses who function as members of the trauma care team. The principles and priorities of initial management of the seriously injured patient are addressed utilizing didactic presentation and application of skills.
The T.E.A.M. course meets the Oregon trauma system hospital requirement for an initial Health Division approved trauma life support course for nurses who provide either emergency department or ICU care to trauma patients.
The T.E.A.M. course also meets the Oregon trauma system hospital requirement for continuing trauma education for nurses. Each nurse has the option of taking a T.E.A.M course or other approved trauma life support course for nurses or taking 16 hours of trauma related nursing CEUs. (OAR 333-200-0080 (5)(b) Exhibit 4).
