This Class Helps Small Rural Hospitals Deal With Big Emergencies

From Illinois Public Media:

“It’s getting harder, we’re asked — like everything across America — to do more with less,” Johnson says. “And so we don’t always have the resources. Sometimes people don’t understand that.”

Sidwell says the course is also about addressing the significance of rural trauma care.

“So if we really want to as a state, if we really want to as a country, eliminate unnecessary disability and death from injury, then we have to address the important role that the rural environment plays,” Sidwell says.

The course is provided free to Iowa hospitals through the state Department of Public Health.
