Upcoming Pediatric Trauma Educational Programs

The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course for physicians emphasizes the rapid initial assessment and primary management of injured patients from time of injury to initial assessment, life-saving intervention, re-evaluation, stabilization, and, when needed, transfer to a trauma center. For more information about our ATLS course please  call 401-444-2282.

The Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) course provides guidelines in assessment and management of burn patients from the scene of the burn injury through the first 24 hours after injury. The courses are open to MDs, RNs, LPNs, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, paramedics, and fire service and other emergency care personnel. For more information, please contact the Rhode Burn Center at 401-606-4210.
