2022 Timely Trauma Topics

Pittsburgh, PA US

Trauma and injury is the leading cause of death in children. Many of these traumatic injuries occur from accidents at home and involve animals or insects. People and providers may not be aware of all of the risks and types of injuries that a child can be exposed to even in their own home. We hope to educate individuals on some of the common animal and insect related mechanism of injury that can occur at home.

 

In order to claim your continuing education credits, you must watch all three of the attached videos and review the attached 2020 Animal Bite Report, complete the quiz with a passing score of 88%, and complete the course evaluation.
