NTSP Courses

We have been running courses teaching basic, intermediate and advanced management of tracheostomy emergencies since 2008. We have developed resources for the first responder and also for those who will attend as airway experts. We have organised 'Train the Trainer' days successfully too whch have allowed other Trusts, Regions and Community organisations to develop their own local training, supported by our resources.

Our courses will be changing in 2013 in partnership with the Advanced Life Support Group ALSG www.alsg,org.. This is due to an overwhelming increase in demand for primary and secondary training around the UK. ALSG is a UK-based charity providing training in over 37 countries around the world for courses such as Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS), Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS), MedicALS and Safe Transfer and Retrieval (STaR). The ALSG courses provide standardised, international, professional courses, resources and instructors.
