Abstract

The World Health Organization defines health care as care for all people of all ages. It should be a society-wide approach to health and well-being, focusing on the needs and preferences of people, families and communities. This approach must focus on the determinants of health and on the interrelated aspects of physical, mental and social health and well-being. Health care for patients with injuries is performed in all medical institutions, which creates the need for continuous training of medical professionals and work on algorithms for quality health care in case of injuries. Early rehabilitation, patient education and eventual disability at home are key to rehabilitating patients, improving their quality of life and their confidence in the healthcare system. Objective: To study the level of awareness of medical professionals about the provision of health care in case of trauma. Materials and methods: The study was conducted with 43 graduates of health care, Bachelor's degree in 2021 year and 48 medical specialists, with employment from 1 to over 15 years working in the field of healthcare. The survey is anonymous, and for this purpose separate questionnaires were developed for the two groups of respondents. Documentary, sociological and statistical methods were used. The processing of the results was carried out with SPSS 19. Results: A large percentage of respondents from both groups are of the opinion that the accumulated work experience in medical institutions is of great importance for quality performance and care. At the same time, 71.43% of the graduates in 2021year medical specialists and 52.08% of the nurses working in the field of healthcare express their desire to be additionally trained to work with patients with traumatic disabilities.
