Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) PostgraduateDate: 19 June 2013 to 21 June 2013
SummaryThe objective of the course is to understand the concept and principles of primary and secondary assessment; how to establish priorities (triage); how to initiate primary and secondary management; demonstrate the skills necessary to assess and manage critically ill patients.
The ATLS course is held twice yearly and is recommended for doctors in their first or second year of specialist training (CT1/ST1 and above). Applications are accepted from FY2 doctors working in a relevant specialty.
ATLS is run over 3 consecutive days with the aim to teach a simple systematic approach to the management of trauma patients. The highly interactive course combines lectures, discussions, interactive tutorials, skills teaching and simulated patient management scenarios (moulage).
There is continual assessment throughout the course. Candidates are also required to pass a pre and post-course multiple choice questionnaire (MCQ).
Successful completion of the course results in the candidate being issued with a certificate from the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
*We do have some places for those non medically qualified staff who would benefit from attending the course such as A&E nurses, ODP's etc. These places are offered as an "Observer" and a certificate of attendance will be issued for those attending the full course.
