Pre-Hospital Advanced Cadaveric Trauma Skills (PHACTS) Course review

Who is it for?The course is specific to trauma skills training in the pre-hospital setting and focuses on providing delegates with exposure to those skills that are rarely performed. As well as hands on skills, the course looks in detail at the human factors involved when caring for a major trauma patient and allows all delegates the opportunity to become the team leader.Delegates were from varied professional backgrounds, including medical, nursing and paramedics with differing levels of seniority and experiences. The course is aimed at higher level pre-hospital practitioners (Level G and H) (Faculty of Pre-hospital Care, 2015); however, other participants may be considered at the discretion of the directing staff. Although not essential, some pre-reading on the anatomical structures involved in traumatic injuries and airway management would be advantageous.
