IMET2000-Pal Participates in ATLS Course in Jordan for Training Doctors from Gaza
We have participated in an Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course organised by ATLS Jordan. This course comes as a continuation of the collaboration between the newly born ATLS Palestine Chapter and Jordan ATLS- led by Dr M Odat. 16 doctors from different districts of Gaza strip were trained in the course. Mr Fady Zaben, Palestine ATLS chapter coordinator and Drs Jubran & Dablah have kindly participated and contributed in the delivery of the course.
As it stands, the clinical management of major trauma in Palestine is not well-organised and inefficient. By implementing ATLS in Palestine, we are hoping to improve outcomes in terms of deaths and provide dynamic dealing with casualties after trauma. We are looking to run our first in-home ATLS training in August 2021. This will be in collaboration with Jordan ATLS Chapter.
