The Red Dot Trauma Course -
Now online - live by interactive video.
In 1985 Dr. Lol Berman and Dr. Gerald de Lacey published the first description of a radiographer alert system in the U.K. See: Berman L, de Lacey G, et al. Reducing errors in the Accident Department; a simple method using Radiographers. BMJ 1985: 290 : 421-422.
Subsequently, the Red Dot Alert scheme was introduced throughout the U.K.
This one day course is designed so as to follow the basic principle that underpins the prize winning book: Accident & Emergency Radiology: A Survival Guide . . . viz: ”these images look normal to me, but – how can I be absolutely sure that I am not missing a subtle but clinically important abnormality?”
