Cognitive and attitudinal impact of the advanced trauma life support program in a developing country.
Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Annual meeting. Ottawa ON CAN, 1992/09.
Improvement in trauma patient outcome has been reported after Advanced Training Life Support training (ATLS) in the developing country of Trinidad and Tobago (T & T).
The cognitive impact of ATLS training was assessed from pre-ATLS and postATLS performance of T & T physicians in multiple choice question tests and comparison with post-ATLS test performance among Nebraska physicians.
Overall, improvement between the pre-test and post-test among the T & T physicians was 22.0% ±2.0%. All physicians including failures (199 out of 212 passed) improved in their post-test scores.
