Haiti Medical Education Project continues to partner with the CALS (Comprehensive Advanced Life Support) Global Program and partners in Haiti to train physicians and nurses in emergency medical training. Twenty-one (21) new CALS Providers and 6 new CALS Instructors were trained in Cap Haitien, Haiti August 15-19, 2016.
The CALS Essentials course teaches the CALS universal team approach to managing life-threatening injury and illness. CALS E providers learn to work together in a systematic way during cardiac, trauma, pediatric, obstetric and adult medical emergencies.
CALS Essentials (CALS-e) was designed for physicians and nurses in places like Haiti that have limited resources.
