Abstract [en]

Objective: The British BATLS/BARTS concept was introduced in Sweden in 1998. Perceived changes within the student group, regarding purposes for taking the course and previous trauma training were the subject of the study. Methods: Records from all Swedish courses during 1998-2007 were examined and analyzed. Results: In all, 61 courses with a total of 1254 students were conducted. Among the participants were 295 doctors, 764 nurses, 176 medical orderlies and 19 belonging to other categories. The course has by time become a pre-mission course. Also, a large number of the students now have previous (often civilian) trauma life support training. Conclusion: When the British BATLS/BARTS concept was introduced in Sweden ten years ago, the general level of trauma training among medical personnel was inadequate for the wartime needs of the Armed Forces. Today, the majority of individuals selected for international service already have previous trauma life support training. This has led to the courses now being aimed mainly at improving their knowledge of the tactical medical skills particular to the environment in which they will serve.
