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 (ACS-COT). Now in its 9th edition, the PHTLS Instructor Update prepares instructors to teach the revised course. Members of the NAEMT Prehospital Trauma Committee will review the role of ACS-COT in the development of the PHTLS 9th edition; discuss the compendium of changes to the PHTLS textbook; review changes to the course modules, schedule, and learning objectives; explain the purpose and content of the new PHTLS student manual; discuss updates to the PHTLS Military Edition textbook; and present changes to the PHT Committee’s TECC and TECC-LEO courses. Current PHTLS instructors who attend the Instructor Update will be qualified to teach the 9th edition PHTLS course.

The update is designed for current PHTLS instructors.
Participants will receive 4 hours of CAPCE approved credit and the textbook and instructor materials are included.

Listen to Dr. Faizan Arshad discuss PHTLS on the EMS Nation podcast here!
