Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) & Advanced Trauma Nursing Course (ATNC)

ATLS® is a multidisciplinary course enabling a standardised language of trauma care across the specialties. The aim of The ATLS® is to teach a simple systematic approach to the management of trauma patients through interactive tutorials, skills teaching and simulated patient management scenarios.


Attendance at the course also exposes the candidate to a network of motivated colleagues with an enthusiasm for trauma management. The ATLS® course was developed by the American College of Surgeons and has now been adopted in over 60 countries worldwide.


The GAPS department also runs an Advanced Trauma Nursing Course that runs along side the ATLS courses during specific times of the year. For more information click on the hyperlink below or check out the ATNC website
