Cadaveric skills courses are not a new
invention, but previously these courses have
focused on the training and education of
surgeons and other medical doctors. Pre-hospital
clinicians have seldom been able to access such
courses, or they have attended as an observer.
Major trauma accounts for a very small part of
the pre-hospital workload, but clinicians will
be expected to perform at the same high level
regardless of exposure. I attended the pilot Pre-
Hospital Advanced Cadaveric Skills (PHACTS)
course in 2015 to improve my own clinical skills
and to provide critical feedback to the teaching
team delivering the course.
