As an accredited PHTLS provider, The Faculty of Health and Life Science recognise that when treating trauma patients in the field, every second counts. This is why we seek to offer a unique approach to addressing multi-system trauma and critical thinking, to give patients the greatest chance of survival.

Our PHTLS programme teaches professionals why certain procedures are performed and emphasises the quick assessment of patients with traumatic injuries to improve survival. Topics include; the principles of trauma care, scene and patient assessment, airway management, circulation, haemorrhage contract and detection/treatment of shock.

This course is also running on the 5th of Sep, 22nd of Nov 2019 and 20th of Feb 2020, these events are two day long events.
