Open Access Thesis


The purpose of this project is to create a teaching module and evaluation tool for a United States Air Force Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron for the pre-hospital assessment of patients with head injuries using the FOUR Score assessment scale. Specifically, this project integrates theory, relevant literature, and reflection on service to and caring for others. Information from published literature supports the development and implementation of a new assessment tool, such as the FOUR Score, to assess patients who have suffered a head injury. Ultimately, a teaching module is presented, described, and evaluated, along with potential questions to be addressed in the future.
