The Definitive Perioperative Nurses Trauma Care Course (DPNTC) is held in conjunction with the DSTC course. It has been developed for registered nurses with experience in perioperative nursing and allows them to develop these skills specifically in the area of trauma surgery.

The Definitive Anaesthetic Trauma Care Course (DATC) is a recent addition to the DSTC and DPNTC. Developed to deliver multidisciplinary trauma training to anaesthetists involved in the care of the severely injured, it will run in all venues across Australia and New Zealand in 2019.
