COURSE STARTS IN
NAEMT's Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognized around the world as the leading continuing education program for prehospital emergency trauma care. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care through global education. PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma. The Committee provides the medical direction and content oversight for the PHTLS program.
PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care in your area and decrease mortality. The program is based on a prehospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. This may require an approach to the trauma patient that varies from traditional treatment modalities. 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 PHTLS course is continuously updated and revised to keep up with the advances in the field, ATLS Guidelines and feedback from PHTLS participants.Although PHTLS originated in the United States, it has evolved and now serves as an international education program available to EMS providers in countries around the world.
The PHTLS First Responder course was designed for all first responders who are exposed to health care providers who hold appropriate licensure or certification at any level designation in prehospital care. Regardless of th students level of training, all advanced skills will be presented within the program as it is instructed. By presenting these interventional skills, the PHTLS provider candidate is provided with supervised introduction to these subjects without any intent of approving the individual to practive them outside the confines of the course. At no time is certification to perform these skills, utilize the equipment, or administer medications intended, implied, or provided
