Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) Reverification Programme

This revision one- day course has been specially developed to allow you to reverify your ATLS® Provider status.

It is designed as a straightforward and cost-effective way to reverify and is offered as an alternative to re-taking the full two-day ATLS® course.

Your ATLS® provider status lapses four years after taking the ATLS® course, and has to be reverified within six months of its lapse date.

The format of this course includes interactive discussions, scenario based skills stations, initial assessment (moulage) scenarios and interactive e-Learning tool which will enhance your learning experience.

The pre-course eLearning consists of an Overview chapter, ATLS® student course manual, 13 modules and quizzes, pre course MCQ test and it takes approximately 1-2 hrs to complete each module. Full completion of the pre-course learning is highly recommended. Completion of Chapter 1, Initial Assessment and Management, Module 1 quiz and pre-course MCQs is a mandatory requirement to attend the course and must be completed by 7am on the day before your course. Delegates who have not completed the mandatory modules will not be allowed to attend the course and will forfeit their course fee. Course participants are also required to read the ATLS® course manual in full to prepare for the assessments on the course.

Suitability

This course is open to ATLS providers who regularly manage severely injured patients and who have taken the ATLS course within the last four and a half years.

Providers who do not regularly manage severely injured patients should reverify by attending the full two day ATLS Provider course. The one day course requires a high degree of familiarity with trauma resuscitation and uses provider's own experiences to illustrate important principles of management.

To be eligible to attend the one day course, students must regularly manage severely injured patients as part of their clinical practice. If they do not have this clinical exposure they will not have the necessary experience to successfully complete the one day course and should attend the two day Provider course.

Reverification of your ATLS student status must happen no later than six months after your status lapses (which happens four years after you take the course).

If you wait any longer than six months, you will need to re-take the full two-day ATLS course.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this course, you should be able to: 

  • Demonstrate refreshed knowledge of all principles of ATLS and its safe, reliable method for immediate management of the injured trauma patient
  • Continue to effectively use the standardised language of trauma care across the specialties that ATLS enables
 

Format

This highly interactive course combines a range of interactive discussions, unfolding scenarios stations with embedded skills and simulated patient management scenarios (moulage).

Before taking the course, you will need to complete the pre-course eLearning and read the course manual in full.

Course participants will receive access to pre-course learning resources on the RCS VLE via a notification with log in details six weeks before the course at the latest.
