ADLS is an advanced practicum course for those who have successfully completed the BDLS course. It is an intensive, two-day course that allows students to demonstrate competencies in casualty decontamination, specified essential skills, and mass casualty incident information systems/technology applications. Using simulated, all-hazards scenarios and mass causality incidents, ADLS makes use of four interactive sessions in which participants treat simulated patients in various disaster drills and situations. Training is focused on the development of hands-on skills to allow participants to apply the knowledge learned in BDLS.
ADLS’s interactive scenarios and drills utilize high-fidelity mannequins and volunteer patients to simulate a realistic experience in treating pathologic patient conditions not routinely encountered by the responders and health care providers. Hands-on exercises teach practical skills, such as decontamination and use of protective equipment, and provide instruction in topics that traditionally are not addressed in health care education curricula. Day 2 of ADLS is the “hands-on” day of training. Four skills stations reinforce the previous day’s learning. These skills stations are as follows:
Physicians, registered or licensed practical nurses, paramedics or national intermediate EMTs, physician assistants, allied health professionals, dentists, pharmacists, public health professionals, public safety officials, veterinarians, health profession students and mental health professionals. All course fees are covered through a grant from Metropolitan Medical Response Systems. Course materials, certificate of completion, lunch, and refreshements will be provided.
