Apply

Thursday, 8th March – Thursday, 8th March 2018

Please note places are not confirmed until payment is made.

The aim of ATLS is to teach a simple systematic approach to the management of trauma patients through interactive tutorials, skills teaching and simulated patient management scenarios. The ATLS® course was developed by the American College of Surgeons and has now been adopted in over 60 countries worldwide.

ATLS student status lapses after four years, and it is recommend that this be renewed within six months of the date of expiry. Students are no longer able to reverify on the final day of the three-day programme. They either need to take the full three-day programme again or attend a one-day reverification course. Reverification course can be taken only within six months of provider status expiry.

Content

ATLS teaches a safe reliable method for immediate management of the injured trauma patient. ATLS is a multidisciplinary course enabling a standardised language of trauma care across the specialties.

Target Audience / Suitability

Eligible students must undertake the course no later than six months after their ATLS provider status has expired (ie no more than four-and-a-half-years must have elapsed since their last ATLS student course).

The reverification programme is aimed at those doctors wishing to reverify their ATLS® status with the necessary knowledge and experience of regularly managing trauma.

Format

Highly-interactive course combining lectures, discussions, interactive tutorials, skills teaching and simulated patient management scenarios (moulage)

There are continual assessments throughout the course, and candidates must complete a pre-course MCQ. Pre-course reading is essential to be able to participate fully in the course.

Additional Information

Candidates may no longer reverify on the final day of a three day provider course. Candidates who wish to renew their status more than four-and-a-half-years after their pass date will be required to take a full ATLS student course.
