- Identify the common mechanisms of injury associated with trauma.
- Describe the pathophysiologic changes as a basis for signs and symptoms.
- Describe the nursing assessment of patients with trauma.
- Identify appropriate nursing diagnosis and expected outcomes for the trauma patient based on the assessment data.
