NAEMT’s Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is the world’s premier prehospital trauma education developed in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons to promote critical thinking in addressing multi-system trauma and provide the latest evidence-based treatment practices.
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 Hybrid Course combines 8 hours of online interactive, web-based content, followed by a one-day, 8-hour face-to-face session for skill station instruction and evaluation. Students will be sent a code via email to access the online component of the course. Students are required to have successfully completed the online content and examination prior to attending the in-person skill station instruction and evaluation.
Note: Maximum class: 20 students. All cancellations are subject to a $75.00 non-refundable fee for administrative and NAEMT fees.
