Trauma Care Course Hosted by Cedars-Sinai

The Department of Surgery's Trauma Program hosted a Trauma Care After Resuscitation (TCAR) course in March.

TCAR is a nursing trauma course designed specifically for acute, critical care and perioperative nurses. The course was instructed by Teresa T. Goodell, PhD, RN, CNS, CWCN, ACNS-BC, TCRN, who serves as a nurse leader in trauma intensive care.

The event was attended by dozens of Cedars-Sinai intensive care nurses as well as nurses from surrounding hospitals. Programs such as TCAR help the trauma program meet the educational and outreach requirements of a Level I trauma center.

Additionally, it helps support the mission of Cedars-Sinai by providing quality education to the nurses so they may continue to provide excellent care to our patients.
