We took the decision to load 16 medical personnel of varying degrees of experience and confidence onto the esteemed Pre Hospital Trauma Life Support course in order to develop their wider professional knowledge and to provide the individual medics the opportunity to springboard their own learning in new directions. The instructors engendered a personal approach towards the students, ensuring that the best was brought out of each and every one of them. The students commented that this allowed their confidence to grow as the tempo increased, which allowed them to perform highly throughout the practical and theory examinations.
Every student left the course with a better knowledge of caring for patients in the pre-hospital environment; with all surpassing their own expectations!
