This Trauma First Response course is a two-day continuing education course that focuses on the principles of Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) to non-EMS practitioners. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care, based on the belief that with knowledge and key principles, pre-hospital practitioners will be capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care. The course serves up the core PHTLS content to those who do not have EMT or advanced pre-hospital training.
Lectures and practical stations are designed to allow first responders an insight into the kind of care they can render while awaiting patient transport or when assisting paramedics and EMTs at trauma scenes. Participants of this course will learn how to care for trauma patients while serving as part of a transport team in an ambulance.
This course is accredited by National Associations of Emergency Medical Technician (NAEMT) USA.
