Major trauma life support (MTLS) course launched to meet urgent demand in Wales
17 May 2023
The University and the South Wales Major Trauma Network (SWMTN) are collaborating to deliver a new blended learning course tailored to Wales' NHS staff.
This programme features sessions from consultants, senior nurses and allied healthcare professionals across Wales, including the SWMTN Lead for Clinical Education, Dr Kosta Morley and the SWMTN Matron, Angharad Griffiths. The MTLS course aims to meet the urgent need for increased trauma education in the acute care setting.
Various factors, including large numbers of emergency department staff, new appraisal curricular requirements, and the impact of the pandemic on training, have culminated in an urgent demand for a bespoke trauma course.
The University and SWMTN aim to fill this gap with the new MTLS course which seeks to offer an affordable, geographically convenient, multi-disciplinary, and clinically applicable course for doctors, nurses, and allied healthcare professionals managing acute trauma.
Delivery is blended, combining independent eLearning study with a face-to-face day session and a virtual assessment. This approach recognises the time pressures frontline staff face and allows them to manage their time and study around their work commitments.
Bookings for this course are now open. Visit the course page for full information on course content, learning outcomes, and a sample timetable for the face-to-face session. There are two face-to-face sessions available: 23 October and 24 October.
