The Children’s Advanced Trauma (CAT) course is aimed at clinicians who have a first line role in managing major paediatric trauma in a trauma centre. The course is delivered via written material, lectures and practical skills teaching including several hi-fidelity trauma simulations.

The written material, lectures and simulation are delivered by experts in trauma and resuscitation, intensive care, anaesthetics, transport medicine, paediatric surgery and neurosurgery.
