Trauma Program Holds Advanced Courses

As a level 1 trauma hospital, the Department of Surgery's Trauma Program regularly holds courses in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) and Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses (ATCN).

These successful courses, which were most recently conducted in mid-November, provide professional education and outreach. They are held concurrently to help teach coordinated trauma care to the multidisciplinary team of clinicians.

In addition to Cedars-Sinai and surrounding parts of Los Angeles County, students came from Hawaii, Korea and Australia. The multidisciplinary course helps support Cedars-Sinai's Magnet designation by demonstrating a commitment to nursing education and professional development, and by fostering collaborative working relationships with other disciplines.

The program is scheduled to host its next series of ATLS/ATCN courses in July 2017.
