The Advanced Trauma Life Support course emphasizes the rapid initial assessment and primary treatment of injured patients, starting at the time of injury and continuing through initial assessment, lifesaving intervention, reevaluation, stabilization, and, when needed, transfer to a trauma center. The course consists of pre-course and post-course tests, core content, interactive discussions, scenario-driven skill stations, lectures, interactive case presentations, discussions, development of lifesaving skills, practical laboratory experiences, and a final performance proficiency evaluation.
Upon completing the course, participants should feel confident in implementing the skills taught in the ATLS course. St. Joseph’s University Medical Center currently provides the ATLS 1-Day Hybrid Course.
