Trauma Life Support
In April 2015 Paul Thomas and Ruthie Markus joined Dutch surgeons Jan Petit and Tom Schiphorst from Malawi.Kom, on a 3-week training mission to hospitals in the northern region of Malawi teaching basic trauma life support skills.
Visiting Mission and District hospitals and covering over 2000km, from Blantyre to the northern border of Malawi, more than120 participants received training in Basic Life Trauma Support skills. The courses proved very popular and LAST intend to repeat these courses in due course.
