Course Description


Car crashes and collisions are complex events that result in a myriad of injuries and associated disorders. As a result, each patient needs to be individually assessed according to the crash scenario and a tailored treatment or management strategy is required. Understanding the forces, force vectors and mechanisms involved for each patient is key to performing a thorough assessment and formulating the appropriate management strategy for each patient. This event will outline:

• Whiplash is not a diagnosis but the mechanism of injury
• Concepts of injury mechanics and tissue trauma through loading scenarios
• Psychological impacts of car crash collisions
• Case documentation for your personal injury patient
• Is diagnostic image required? If so, what type?


• Understanding of car crash mechanics and its effects on the patient
• Knowledge and skillset to thoroughly assess and diagnose patients’ injuries following car collisions
• Knowledge of how to apply the above in clinical practice and synthesise your approach to patient assessment and management
