Abstract:
Health care is not immune to the economic crisis. Often, education budgets are cut, victims of the tension created by the need to provide mandatory continuing education and the necessity of remaining financially viable. The Trauma Education Consortium (TEC) was born out of such tension--the need to provide cost-efficient, trauma-specific nursing education. To support the trauma specific continuing education hours required by trauma accrediting agencies, trauma centers in our metropolitan area innovatively collaborated to create the TEC. All participating facilities are either state designated or ACS verified Trauma Centers and must agree to provide one trauma-specific CEU program (minimum of 4 contact hours) annually, at no charge to consortium members. The sponsoring institution is responsible for the recruitment and selection of speakers and topics and the publication of the seminar brochure. A summary of the written evaluations are completed and submitted to the members of the consortium for quality review. The benefits of participation in the TEC are many, including exposure to a wide breadth of educational opportunities at decreased expense, enhanced ability to recruit and retain talented trauma nurses, and increased partnership in providing care to the regions residents. Over the last 10 years, more than 110 trauma specific programs have been presented to almost 10,000 participants, totaling in excess of 35,000 contact hours. The consortium model has been replicated and our area now boasts a Stroke Education Consortium and a Critical Care Education Consortium as well.
