Remote Medical Life Support (Online Review Course)
UPDATE JULY 2021
This course has just been approved for FAWM credit from the WMS. We will be offering this virtual RMLS course starting in November. We will have course dates on the WMS website shortly.
According to research conducted by the Department of Defence, the majority of injuries and ailments found in a deployed setting fall into non-combat injury category. Therefore, Disease and Non Battle Injuries (DNBI) cause more interruption and loss of production than any other type of injuries. Additionally, civilian remote medics see that 18 of the top 20 injuries and ailments are non-trauma based. This article is based on that research. Therefore, CoROM has used this research to design and launch the RMLS course.
