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.

Two Wheel Trauma

Saturday, May 30, 2020

Pocahontas Community Hospital
606 NW 7th St.
Pocahontas, IA 50574

When preregistered by May 15, 2020 there is a nominal $10 CEH fee (payable at the door) due to the generous support of ABATE of Iowa, ABATE District 10, Pocahontas Community Hospital and the Pocahontas County Emergency Response System. Those not preregistered by May 15 may be assessed a late fee.

Over 50% of all motorcycle crashes will result in serious injury or fatality. EMS providers must be prepared to assess the crash scene, prevent rescuer injury and accurately triage & treat the injured. The Two Wheel Trauma concept was fashioned in early 1986 by three experienced EMS providers in rural Clay County, IA. Anita Bailey, Slider Gilmore and Frank Prowant saw the need for a specialized CEH program to focus on motorcycle trauma. Wayne Wierson, an avid motorcyclist, joined the faculty in 2005 to present Share the Road. For more information and to register, click here to view the event brochure.
