Developed by NAEMT, this course promotes excellence in trauma patient management through global education. Based on a pre-hospital trauma care philosophy that stresses the treatment of a trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs, PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care and decrease mortality. The programme is recognised around the world as best in class.
The PHTLS Refresher Course is an 8-hour classroom course for individuals who have successfully completed the 16-hour PHTLS provider course within the past four years. A current PHTLS provider certificate or wallet card is required.
