The Pre-hospital Trauma Training programme is devoted to supporting the development of highly skilled pre-hospital care providers in trauma care. We strive to deliver a programme that is evidence based and practical for excellence in pre-hospital trauma training.
The basic premises are high trauma training standards, a commitment to support the trauma training needs of the pre-hospital emergency care, and two-way knowledge exchanges between the pre-hospital emergency care and hospital providers.

|Managing Electrical Injuries in Pre-hospital Settings|
11 November 2021
Electrical and lightning injuries are not uncommon injuries encountered in Singapore, however, what passes through the body can be deadly. Early pre-hospital recognition and management are critical in preventing mortality and improving patient’s recovery outcomes. Thus, the talk will focus on the safety aspects of handling electrical injuries at scene, pathophysiology of electrical injuries, the potential damages, and pre-hospital care of electrical burn patients with real case scenarios.

|Paediatric Major Trauma & Traumatic Brain Injury|
16 September 2021
Trauma is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity among the paediatric population. The assessment and management of paediatric trauma patients is unique despite simVirtual Webinarilarities with the adult population. Unique anatomic and physiologic differences can impact the care of these patients. Traumatic brain injuries contribute to a significant proportion of these fatal cases. Optimising the management of these patients can affect the outcome.
In this webinar, we discussed the management of a paediatric trauma patient with special focus on traumatic brain injuries.
Chairperson: Dr Chua Wei Chong (WH), Speakers: LTA Zane Ang (SCDF), Junaidah Badron (KKH), Dr Chong Shu-Ling (KKH),
Panellist: Chiang Li Wei (KKH), Moderator: Mr Han Ming Xuan (SCDF).
Assessment & Management of Crush Injuries
3 Jun 2021
Did you know that injuries related to crushing, fractures and dislocations contributed to more than half of workplace major injuries in Singapore in 2018 and 2019 (Workplace Safety and Health Report, 2019)? Although these injuries are not often seen in daily practice, the readiness in managing crush injury casualties should not be taken lightly as crush syndrome is one of the common causes of death after a direct impact from the trauma. The pre-hospital treatment of the casualty involves the pre-extrication phase and the post-extrication phase. This Pre-hospital Trauma Training covered real-life case studies, practical lectures, and interactive discussions on the spectrum of crush injuries and crush syndrome – how they occur, what they result in, what to look out for and how to manage crush injuries on the ground.
Chairperson: Dr Alvin Tan (SKH), Speakers: Mr Kenneth Foong (SCDF), Dr Tan Hwee Leong (SKH), Dr Goh Mui Heng (TTSH).
|Injury Pattern Recognition in Trauma|
18 November 2020
Are mass, height, speed, mechanism etc., important information for trauma? Come and find out how information surrounding the kinematics of injury helps us in raising the index of suspicion for injuries. In this webinar, we discussed the management of a paediatric trauma patient with special focus on traumatic brain injuries.
Chairperson: Mr Kenneth Foong (SCDF), Speaker: Adj Asst Prof Teo Li-Tserng (TTSH), Moderator: Ms Karen Go (TTSH).
|Pre-hospital Haemorrhage Control|
21 October 2020
How do you manage a rapidly exsanguinating patient? In this webinar, the pre-hospital and trauma care team experts discussed the practical tips for the initial assessment and management of haemorrhage control at pre-hospital settings.
Chairperson: Mr Zane Ang (SCDF), Speakers: Dr Lim Yu Ling Mary (TTSH), Mr Kenneth Foong (SCDF), Moderator: Ms Karen Go (TTSH).
