The PHTLS teaches and reinforces the principles of rapidly assessing a trauma patient using an orderly approach, immediately treating life-threatening problems as they are identified and minimizing delays in initiating transport to an appropriate destination. This is for all levels of EMS practitioners.
The class will meet June 29 and June 30 for a total of 16 hours of continuing education with a face-to-face session for the patient simulation, skills station instruction and evaluations. Certification is good for four years.
Preregistration is required by June 22. The book, PHTLS 9th edition, is not included in the class fee.
