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 a 2 day course and is a course to help 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.
Attendance of the entire program as well as scoring at least 76% on the written examination and successfully passing a simulated patient scenario as a Team Leader is required for course completion and certification.
