(5) The Model of Care (MoC) for the ACT Trauma Service was endorsed by the Chair of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Trauma Committee Chair, Mr John Crozier in December 2016.
(6) In order for verification to occur the MoC has to be embedded within the organisation for a 12 month period before the RACS Trauma Verification Sub-committee will consider review. This will not take place until late 2018.
The review process can take a further 6-12 months dependant on the availability of the RACS Trauma Verification Sub-committee, the number of patients admitted under the MoC to allow assessment and for the outcome to be returned to RACS. It is anticipated that this process will be finalised within the next 12-18 months.
(7) The Trauma Service is staffed with:
• four trauma surgeons;
• one Trauma Nurse Practitioner Coordinator;
• two Resident Medical Officers; and
• 1.5 full time equivalent Trauma Case Managers (Registered Nurses).
Each consultant works a 1:8 on-call commitment as the Trauma consultant.
From 7:00am until 5:00pm Monday to Friday, the Trauma consultant is occupied with handover meetings, ward rounds, inpatient consultations, responding to trauma alert codes, attending outpatient clinics for their dedicated specialty and undertaken education, research and assisting in the development of activity-based-funding pathways and protocols.
(8) I can advise that the Clinical Director of the Trauma Service reports to the Executive Director, Division of Surgery and Oral Health at Canberra Hospital. Trauma Service medical officers report to the Clinical Director and nursing staff report to the Director of Nursing Division of Surgery and Oral Health. The Executive Director Division of Surgery and Oral Health reports to the Deputy Director-General Canberra Hospital and Health Services.
