The principles of trauma management are universal irrespective of the source of destructive energy (whether it is a landmine or a motor vehicle) and irrespective of the caregiver’s educational level. The Trauma Team Training Course (TTT ™) is designed to help personnel apply these principles to all types of injury.
The purpose of this course is to train personnel at the technical level to apply the principles of trauma management at centers with limited resources. TTT is unique because the unit of instruction is not an individual, but a whole team. The team is comprised of personnel who handle acute emergencies in most low-income country hospitals; often, this does not include doctors and, if it does, they are junior level doctors.
The Trauma Team Training Course was developed and tested in several formats since June of 1998 under the auspices of the Injury Control Center-Uganda (ICC-U), with funding from the Canadian Network for International Surgery (CNIS), and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) partnership and multilateral branches.
