Motor Vehicle Crashes

leave a comment » has a CE offering on motor vehicle crashes. It’s the standard article-posttest format and will net you 2 CEUs (at a cost of $18). It caught my eye because it has a section on assessing the scene, which might appeal to some of you.

Objectives include:

•    Recount the cost to society of motor vehicle crashes.
•    Evaluate the extent to which occupant protection systems reduce death and injury.
•    Explain how different impacts produce various types of injuries.
•    Identify the elements of a good scene size-up.
•    Demonstrate the assessment of a patient with a traumatic mechanism of injury.
•    Discuss the management of injuries to specific areas of the body.
