NAEMT's Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognized around the
world as the leading continuing education program for prehospital emergency
trauma care. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient
management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care.
PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of
Surgeons' Committee on Trauma. The Committee provides the medical direction
and content oversight for the PHTLS program.
PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care and decrease
mortality. The program is based on a philosophy stressing the treatment of
the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs.
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.
Provider Course: 16-hour course for EMTs, paramedics, nurses,
physician assistants, physicians and other prehospital providers. Upon
successful completion of the course, students receive a certificate of
completion, a wallet card recognizing them as PHTLS providers for 4 years,
and 16 hours of CAPCE credit. This hybrid course is where students take 8
hours of the course online followed by 8 hours in the classroom.
