Mission Statement: “Promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care.”
Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognised around the world as the leading continuing education program for prehospital emergency trauma care.
PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care and decrease mortality. The program is based on a philosophy stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care. The course utilises the internationally recognized 9th Edition of the PHTLS textbook which has been updated and published for UK providers and covers the following topics:
- Physiology of life and death
- Scene assessment
- Patient assessment
- Breathing, ventilation and oxygenation
- Circulation, heamorrhage and shock
- Patients with disabilities
- Patient simulations
PHTLS is the global gold standard in prehospital trauma education and is taught in 64 countries and is appropriate for paramedics, EMTs/ECAs, nurses, advanced practitioners, doctors and other prehospital providers. PHTLS is accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.
