Abstract

Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) is not a novel intervention in the trauma literature. However, the incorporation of this intervention into the Canadian emergency department setting is recent in onset. This healthcare setting is dynamic and the nurses who practice in the emergency setting must be efficient care providers for an infinitely diverse set of potential patient presentations. The introduction of this complex procedure was accompanied by a variety of educational strategies to enhance the uptake of this new knowledge. The usage of small groups, didactic teaching, hands-on practice, establishing unit champions, coordinating in-situ simulations, and creating workflow documents were strategies used by the education team at this academic center for this particular knowledge dissemination exercise.
