An advanced trauma training curriculum for the resource limited setting.
90% of trauma deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.
The mission of Kampala Advanced Trauma Care course is to reduce the mortality and morbidity of trauma by formally training healthcare providers in advanced care.
“Before KATC it was not rare to find an unconscious patient with their neck positioned in some funny way, or find a very small cannula gauge used on them. It was not surprising to find a neglected wound that bled the whole night…
After the training our interns knew what to assess for. There is an obvious and great improvement after the training.”
