PHTLS is the premier pre-hospital 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. The program will strengthen the EMS providers’ assessment skills and techniques for managing patients in distress. The program is based on a pre-hospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs and has shown to improve the quality of trauma care in all patients and also decrease mortality.

PHTLS is appropriate for EMTs, paramedics, nurses, physician assistants, physicians, and other prehospital providers.  The training will be held at Easthampton Fire Department, 32 Payson Ave., Easthampton, MA,
