Advanced Trauma Life Support 10th edition

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) are currently developing its renowned ATLS® course. As the sole provider of ATLS® in the UK and soon to launch its 10th edition, The Royal College of Surgeons has been selected to pilot a new hybrid version of the course. Whilst continuing to teach an effective and systematic approach to the management of trauma patients, the hybrid course offers online modules and a shorter face-to-face element.

The format of this hybrid course includes a state-of-the-art and interactive eLearning tool which will enhance your learning experience and reduce the number of days attending the practical sessions from three to two.

The pilot course can also provide candidates with the exciting opportunity to participate in the 10th edition course before its launch in the UK early next year. By taking part, candidates have the opportunity to help shape advanced life support education and the future of this highly popular course.

Definitive Surgical Trauma Skills

Welcome to the DSTS e-learning module. The purpose of this module is to support the two-day course which consists of cadaveric workshops and interactive case scenarios.

DSTS is structured upon real-life scenario situations in trauma that require adequate understanding of the decision-making process. During the course, an experienced trauma faculty comprised of UK and international surgeons took you through the surgical exposures necessary in the thorax, neck, abdomen and  limbs and you were trained on techniques that are required to treat haemorrhage. Essentials of the relevant surgical anatomy were demonstrated on real anatomical surgical prosections. The practical sessions were complemented by lectures which intended to provide you with a thorough knowledge of emerging technologies which may affect your decisions.

The e-learning module will solidify and expand on the course's learning objectives.
