The HECTOR Course Manual; FOAMed

Those of you who are regular listeners to HEFTEMCAST will be aware of the superb work that David Raven is doing with elderly trauma via the HECTOR Project.

So far we’ve heard Dave talk about the unique challenges of dealing with elderly trauma and more recently he spoke about the early results from the HECTOR Project.

To find out a bit more about the HECTOR Project have a read of About HECTOR.

A large part of the project centres around the education of health care professionals who deliver trauma care to the population aged 65 years and older. In the true spirit of #FOAMed Dave has opened up the first 6 chapters of the manual for all to gain from, see below!
