The Tallahassee Memorial Trauma Center will be hosting an Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) refresher course for physicians, extenders and RNs Sunday, April 28 at the Ghazvini Center.
The Advanced Trauma Life Support® (ATLS®) program will teach you a systematic, concise approach to the care of a trauma patient. ATLS was developed by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Committee on Trauma (COT) and was first introduced in 1980. Its courses provide a safe and reliable method for immediate management of injured patients, teaching how to assess patients’ conditions, resuscitate and stabilize them and determine if their needs exceed a facility’s capacity. It also covers how to arrange for a patient’s inter-hospital transfer and assure that optimum care is provided throughout the process.
If you don’t treat trauma patients frequently, an ATLS course provides an easy method to remember for evaluation and treatment of a trauma victim.
This one day provider refresher course for Physicians and Extenders provides you with 5 CEUs.
April 28, 10 am - 3 pm
Attendees must participate in the entire day to receive credit for this course.
