Advanced Disaster Life Support (ADLS)

ADLS is a more advanced practicum course for trained BDLS providers. It is an intensive course that trains students in mass casualty decontamination, use of personal protective equipment, essential skills and mass casualty incident information systems and technology applications. The course uses simulated all-hazards scenarios, interactive sessions and drills with high-fidelity mannequins and volunteer patients to gain a true-to-life, practical experience in treatment and response. The course is presented over two days -- day one is primarily didactic and day two consists of hands-on training distributed over four ADLS training stations.

The target audience for the course is physicians, physician assistants, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, allied health professionals, public health professionals and veterinarians.

Additional Information:
ADLS is offered by various agencies. Check the American Medical Association website for further details. Local or personal funding should be utilized. There is no central funding available. For further information contact the CG-1121 Training Manager.
