What We Do > Education

Trauma education grows critical thinking skills, improves technical skills, and advances general knowledge to ensure optimal management of severely injured patients. Trauma Nova Scotia provides trauma education courses including the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) Course and the Provincial Trauma Course. We also offer inter-professional clinical trauma rounds and webinars, and we provide simulation training to trauma care professionals across the province. Our education programs and courses are designed to improve trauma care by increasing trauma knowledge and skills, and by providing a network of communication within the province.

Developed by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma, the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course (10th Edition) teaches trauma care professionals how to assess a patient's condition, resuscitate, stabilize, determine and arrange inter-facility transfers in our trauma system.
