3Personnel Who should take ATT? Who is needed to teach ATT? Basic AdvancedWho is needed to teach ATT?Course CoordinatorMedical AdvisorFacultyThe Basic ATT course is geared toward the Emergency Medical Responder (First Responder) and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-Basic), while the Advanced ATT Course is geared toward the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-Intermediate), Paramedic, and other advanced life support providers.The basic course is designed to cover basic trauma life support concepts from the basic life support provider's level of training (anatomy and physiology and the pathophysiology of injury), while the advanced course builds upon the basic trauma life support concepts and provides a more in-depth look into trauma care and advanced patient management.The people, or positions, you will need for your ATT Course include:One approved ATT Course CoordinatorOne ATT Medical AdvisorOne ATT Faculty member for every eight participantsYou can also consider involving ATT Support Staff. ATT Support Staff can assist with planning, marketing, making course arrangements, registration, and course implementation. However, they are not required to present the ATT Course.The number of Faculty needed to conduct an ATT Course varies depending on how many participants are enrolled in the course. The skill stations and scenarios require a Faculty-to-participant ratio of 1:8 (or follow the ratio set by your local continuing education accreditation agency). For example, if there is a course with 24 participants, 3 faculty members are needed.
4General Administration Minimal bureaucracyCourse Coordinators deal with the AAOSEasy to coordinateLocal faculty, content expertsNearly paperlessATT database allows seamless processElectronic submission of course formsA well-organized and well-prepared Course Coordinator will ensure that the course runs smoothly and efficiently. This requires some preparation. With the ATT Course, bureaucracy is minimal. ATT Course Coordinators interact directly with the AAOS via .Course Coordinators also select their own Faculty and Medical Advisors, which allows them to engage local content experts as Faculty. Local content experts are well-versed in the issues and controversies of their area and will engage participants.Administration of the course occurs almost entirely through the ATT web site. This offers user-friendly, time-saving administration in a nearly "paperless" environment. Forms are electronically submitted, thus negating a messy and time consuming paper trail.Most importantly, Course Coordinators can access all of the information that they need to prepare for an ATT Course directly from the ATT web site at any time.
5Course Coordinator Responsibilities (1 of 2) Maintain integrity of programSelect and communicate with an ATT Medical AdvisorSelect appropriate FacultyEncourage participants and Faculty to complete course evaluationsThe ATT Course Coordinator is responsible for oversight of all aspects of ATT Course implementation. The Course Coordinator is the primary person responsible for the quality of the ATT Course.The ATT Course Coordinator maintains the integrity of the program. The AAOS has involved many subject matter experts in the development of the ATT curriculum. However, the quality of the course relies heavily on the ATT Course Coordinator and Faculty in the delivery of the program. The Course Coordinator maintains the integrity of the program and ensures that all minimum course requirements are met.It is the ATT Course Coordinator’s responsibility to identify a person to serve as the ATT Medical Advisor for the course.A Course Coordinator also recruits, prepares, and supervises the Faculty for the course being conducted.The AAOS wants to improve the ATT Course continually. Therefore, feedback from the participants and Faculty is very important. ATT Course Coordinators are asked to encourage each participant and Faculty member to complete an evaluation form on the ATT web site.
6Course Coordinator Responsibilities (2 of 2) Coordinate logistical issuesManage course budgetBe at the entire courseCommunicate with the AAOSSubmit Course Notification FormSubmit Course RostersTeach two courses in 4 yearsThe Course Coordinator is responsible for logistical issues, ranging from securing equipment and room reservations to registration and catering.The ATT Course Coordinator manages the course budget.The Course Coordinator is responsible for the educational quality of the ATT Course. The Course Coordinator must be present for the entire course and should supervise the registration process and observe all lectures, scenarios, and skill stations. The Course Coordinator needs to be prepared to intervene if necessary. This could involve teaching a segment of the course or redirecting a scenario or skill station.Course Coordinators are responsible for submitting course notifications forms and course rosters to the AAOS for each ATT Course. One month prior to each ATT Course, the Course Coordinator needs to complete a course notification form. At the completion of each ATT Course, the Course Coordinator needs to complete a course roster and submit it to the AAOS. Both of these forms are submitted electronically through the ATT web site.An ATT Course Coordinator must teach at least two ATT Courses within 4 years to maintain their status.
7Medical Advisor Requirements Physician (MD or DO)Current responsibilities in the local or regional EMS systemKnow local and/or regional EMS jurisdictional protocolsEach ATT Course needs to have a Medical Advisor to serve as a medical resource to the Course Coordinator on EMS issues or specific concerns related to the course. ATT Medical Advisors must:Have an active physician’s license (MD or DO)Hold current responsibilities in the local or regional EMS systemKnow local and/or regional EMS jurisdictional protocolsAgree to review how the ATT Course can be integrated into the local EMS communityAnswer questions regarding the course content and integration of ATT principles into the EMS system
8Medical Advisor Responsibilities Provide direction and advice for the Course CoordinatorReview the course contentRecommend potential Faculty, if neededIdentify and clarify jurisdictional and protocol issues to be addressed in the courseThe level of involvement needed from the Medical Advisor may vary from one course to the next. While it is not mandatory for the Medical Advisor to be on-site during the course, the name and address of the Medical Advisor must be indicated on the course roster. The Medical Advisor must:Provide medical direction and advice for the Course Coordinator as neededReview the course content and recommend potential Faculty if neededIdentify and clarify jurisdictional and protocol issues to be addressed in the courseServe as a Faculty member if possible
9Faculty Chosen by Course Coordinator Appropriate level of training Advanced level course requires ALS providersBasic course can use ALS or BLS providersMust have teaching materials prior to courseFaculty members are chosen by the Course Coordinator and must be health care professionals. It is important that the Faculty members selected are appropriately trained for the audience that they are teaching. For example, an advanced level course would require ALS providers only as Faculty.Ideally, Faculty members are individuals who have successfully completed an ATT Course and Faculty Orientation. Additional Faculty requirements may be required by local continuing education accreditation agencies to successfully award continuing education credits to participants.Faculty members must have a copy of the ATT textbook and have access to the ToolKit CD-ROM. They should read the sections pertinent to their teaching assignments before teaching the course.
10Faculty Responsibilities Facilitate learning processFamiliar with course structure and materialWork with Course Coordinator and other FacultyRead materials related to ATT Faculty and teaching assignmentsFaculty serve to facilitate the learning process of assigned materials in a meaningful way for the participants in the course. They must familiarize themselves with the overall course structure and assigned material before the course and should be thoroughly familiar with the objectives and content that they are presenting.Faculty must be willing to work with the Course Coordinator and other Faculty. Typically, an ATT Course involves an ATT Course Coordinator and several Faculty members. It is important that everyone work together as a team to present a successful course for the participants.
11Preparing Faculty Review course schedule Unusual situations or potential problemsManagement of scenariosManagement and set-up of skill stationsQuestions about course contentIt is recommended that the Course Coordinator meet with the Faculty before the start of the course to discuss the following:Review of the course scheduleAny unusual situations or areas of potential conflict with local protocolsManagement of small group scenariosManagement and set-up of equipment for skill stationsQuestions about course content
12Course Requirements (1 of 2) Course size1:8 Faculty-to-participant ratioEnough equipment for skill stationsRoom requirementsLarge room for lecturesBreakout rooms for scenarios and skill stationsThe number of Faculty needed to conduct an ATT Course varies depending on how many participants are enrolled in the course. The scenarios and skill stations require a Faculty-to-participant ratio of 1:8 (or follow the ratio set by your local continuing education accreditation agency). For example, if there is a course with 24 participants, 3 faculty members are needed.As part of the planning process, the Course Coordinator needs to calculate the maximum number of participants who can register for the course. To do this, the Course Coordinator must investigate the size of the lecture room as well as how many breakout rooms are available.Course Coordinators are also responsible for ensuring that enough equipment is available for all skill stations.
13Course Requirements (2 of 2) Audiovisual equipmentLCD projector and screenComputer with CD-ROM driveDVD playerMonitorTo run the course, Course Coordinators will need to have the appropriate audiovisual equipment on hand. This includes:LCD projector and screenComputer with CD-ROM driveDVD playerMonitor

21Budget Considerations PromotionFaculty expensesEquipment purchase and rentalFacility expensesCourse suppliesCopyingPostageThe Course Coordinator is responsible for the course budget. Budget issues vary from course to course. When creating a budget, keep in mind the costs for these items:Promotional materials. This includes brochures and ads that need to be designed, printed, and mailed.Faculty Expenses. This includes Course Faculty transportation, lodging, meals, and in some cases, a Faculty honorarium.Equipment Purchase and Rental. You will need disposable supplies, Skill Station equipment, and Audiovisual equipment.Facility Expenses. This includes the possible rental fee for general session and breakout rooms, Meeting coordinator charges, meals, and refreshments.Course Supplies. This includes textbooks, toolkits, DVDs, pens, paper, and name badges.Photocopying.Postage for Faculty and participant confirmation letters and miscellaneous correspondence.Shipping to supply Faculty with ATT textbooks.Some Course Coordinators may wish to charge a fee to participants for taking the course in order to cover the costs of implementing the course. The need and amount of course fees are at the sole discretion of the Course Coordinator.
22Course Schedules Basic and Advanced courses consist of: 2-hour Precourse Online Module8-hour On-Site ModuleSchedules include minimum course contentMay be lengthened to allow more time for practice or discussionThere are two options available for delivering the ATT Course:Basic ATT CourseAdvanced ATT CourseBoth versions of the ATT Course incorporate a combination of Online and On-Site modules, including:A two-hour Precourse Online Module which provides participants the opportunity to refresh their knowledge of basic trauma concepts.An eight-hour On-Site Module to enhance and expand the participants’ trauma knowledge and skills through highly interactive small group scenarios and hands-on skill stations.The basic and advanced course schedules provided on the ATT web site include minimum course content and minimum times. If desired, the course can be lengthened to allow more time for participant practice or discussion.
23Course Components Precourse Online Module Lectures Scenarios Skill StationsWritten TestThe components of an ATT Course include:The Precourse Online ModuleLecturesScenariosSkill StationsA Written Test
24Precourse Online Module Prerequisite knowledge in 12 specialized modulesMust complete prior to On-Site ModuleTwo attempts provided2-hours in lengthDoes not have to be finished in one sitting180-days to complete from logonThe Precourse Online Module is designed to refresh the participants’ knowledge of core trauma concepts. An access code to the Precourse Online Module is packaged into each ATT textbook.Participants are required to successfully complete the 2-hour Precourse Online Module prior to attending an On-Site module. Upon successful completion, participants are asked to print a completion certificate to present to the Course Coordinator at the On-Site Module.After the completion of the twelve specialized lessons, participants will take an examination to test their retention of the materials presented. Participants must receive a minimum of 80% on the examination in order to attend the On-Site Module. If a participant does not successfully complete the examination on the first attempt, the participant will have an opportunity to review the materials and will be given a second attempt to successfully complete the examination. If a participant does not successfully complete the examination after the second attempt, that participant should review the textbook, obtain a new access code, and review the entire Precourse Online Module again.
25Lectures Basic lectures Advanced lectures Initial Assessment (with video)Head and Neck TraumaTorso TraumaAdvanced lecturesAirwayTraumatic Brain InjuryThe lectures are designed for presentation to the entire group by one Faculty member. The ATT lectures are used to convey a broad overview of traumatic issues and give specific information to the participant. The lectures are most interesting when the Faculty member adjusts the lecture to the needs of the audience. For example, the audience may consist of rural EMS providers who often respond to farming incidents. The Faculty member should provide information about injuries from farming equipment.On the ToolKit CD-ROM, there is a lecture folder with ready-to-use PowerPoint presentations for both the Basic and Advanced levels. Each lecture is designed to be presented in 30 minutes. The Basic lectures include:Initial Assessment (with video)Head and Neck TraumaTorso TraumaThe Advanced lectures include:AirwayTraumatic Brain Injury
26Scenarios (1 of 3) Basic and Advanced scenarios Mechanism of injury ShockExtremity traumaSpecial populationsThe scenarios are designed to promote learning through small group discussions centered around a case study. This is an ideal opportunity for participants to share their own experiences, ask questions about the issues raised in the case study, and voice their concerns about any controversies.Ideally, these small groups will comprise eight participants per Faculty member. Each scenario is designed to be presented in 30 minutes.For each topic, there are three Advanced and three Basic case studies. The Advanced cases offer more complex physiology or management, while the Basic cases are designed not to require advanced life support interventions.Faculty should not to rush the participants in order to try to cover all of the cases. Focus on each case and give the participants time to explore the case. The schedule is not designed to give Faculty time to cover all of the cases.26
27Scenarios (2 of 3)Basic scenarios cover pathophysiology and treatment to the level of EMT (EMT-Basic)Advanced scenarios require more advanced treatment and core knowledgeFor each topic, there are three Basic and three Advanced case studies. The Advanced cases offer more complex physiology or management, while the Basic cases are designed not to require advanced life support interventions.27
28Scenarios (3 of 3) Case-based small group discussions Faculty present the case and allow discussion of key pointsGroups will approach and manage the case differentlyFaculty should be familiar with local protocols and methods of careThe ATT scenarios play an important role in helping participants to apply information from all aspects of the course. The Faculty presents a scenario, and the participants must work through the case as a team, requesting additional information from the Faculty. The Faculty provides supervision and facilitation throughout the process of case development, allowing the small group to ask questions and formulate a plan for care. Each scenario is designed with questions that the Faculty can pose to the small group. At the end of each scenario, the Faculty provides a case summary to emphasize the major teaching points.Faculty should limit their intervention to situations in which the discussion is unproductive or is proceeding down a path that will not provide a useful learning experience. Provide additional information when requested, but allow the group to solve problems among themselves as much as possible.Adult learners have a wide range of past experiences that influence their decision-making and problem-solving skills. Therefore, small groups may approach and manage the case differently each time. Faculty should assist participants in relating the ATT Course information to their own experiences. When participants describe problem situations, for instance, Faculty can help them to make connections to the course material.
29Skill Stations (1 of 2) Basic and Advanced skill stations Assessment AirwaySpinal immobilization (with video)Glascow coma score (with video)Mass casualty incident triage (with video)The ATT Course includes instruction in several essential motor skills to improve care for the trauma patient. The emphasis in the skill stations is on learner participation with supervision from Faculty members. Each skill station begins with general information on setting up the skill station, the room and equipment requirements, and suggestions on how to demonstrate and teach the skills. The skill stations are designed to have a 8:1 participant-to-Faculty ratio (or follow the ratio set by your local continuing education accreditation agency). The Faculty at the skill station should ensure that every participant performs each skill taught at each station.As an added bonus, the equipment list is the same for both the Basic and Advanced courses.The Basic and Advanced skill stations include:AssessmentAirwaySpinal immobilizationGlascow coma scoreMass casualty incident triageThe spinal immobilization, Glascow coma score, and mass casualty incident triage skill stations all use video of simulated events to reinforce learning and to engage the participants.
30Skill Stations (2 of 2) Case-based Designed to teach using activity Reinforced with videoAdaptable to all EMS levelsDo not test or certify skillsThe skill station format serves two purposes. The case-based ATT skill stations:1. Create a critical thinking situation for participants, allowing them to work together to learn from one another2. Provide a forum for demonstrating and teaching hands-on skills and allowing participants to practice these skills under the Faculty’s supervisionEach skill station can be tailored to reflect local protocols. For example, if LMAs are available in your area, you may use them in the Airway Skill Station.All of the skills are presented in Basic and Advanced textbook for easy reference during the skill stations.
31Written Test Case-based format Must participate in full course to qualify to take the written testClosed bookFour tests availableAdvanced version I and IIBasic version I and IIPassing score, 80% or higherAllow two attemptsWritten testing is an important part in determining whether participants have mastered the information and skills presented in the ATT Course. The ATT Course is presented in a case-based format so most of the questions on the test are case-based. This format not only tests the participant’s knowledge, but also the participant’s ability to apply that knowledge to specific situations. Each course participant who wants to receive an ATT Course Completion Certificate must successfully complete the ATT test.The test is administered after all other course components are complete. Course participants who participated in the full course by attending all of the components qualify to take the test. It is a closed-book test, corrected by the Course Coordinator or an assisting Faculty member. The passing score on the test is 80% or higher.Some participants will not successfully complete the test on the first attempt. The Course Coordinator needs to work with each participant who does not pass the test to develop a remediation plan. The participant may have a second attempt to complete the test successfully. If the participant does not pass the test on the second attempt, the participant must retake the course to qualify for an ATT Course Completion Certificate.The ATT written test packet is made available to Course Coordinators when the AAOS receives verification of a successful completion of the ATT Course Coordinator Orientation. The ATT written test packet includes the following four tests:Advanced Post-test, version IAdvanced Post-test, version IIBasic Post-test, version IBasic Post-test, version II

The AAOS recommends that providers renew their ATT certification every 4 years.ATT Course Completion Certificates are disseminated electronically and free-of-charge to participants once the course roster has been approved.Please note that the ATT Course is a continuing education course that is designed to provide additional knowledge and a refreshment of skills. It does not certify or license participants.
33Continuing Education Credit CECBEMS credit through AAOSParticipants request upon registering for Precourse Online ModuleCourse Coordinators request on course rosterAdditional continuing education credit completed by Course Coordinators according to local requirementsContinuing education credit from CECBEMS is available through the AAOS. The processing of credits occurs seamlessly through the ATT database.Participants can request CECBEMS credit when registering for the Precourse Online Module. Additionally, Course Coordinators can request CECBEMS credit when completing the course roster.For other types of continuing education credit, Course Coordinators should work with the appropriate agency in their region to arrange for securing continuing education credits for the participants. If you are not certain about how to secure additional continuing education credits in your area, contact the EMS office.
34Paperwork Nearly paperless paperwork Course Notification Form Course RosterCourse Completion CertificateFaculty and Participant Evaluation FormsWith the ATT Course, administration occurs almost completely online in a paperless environment. The next few slides will walk you through each step of the paperless administration process.
35Course Notification Form (1 of 2) Submit 1 month before course dateLinks registered course participants to the course rosterCourse roster is automatically populated with participants’ informationOne month prior to each ATT Course, the Course Coordinator will complete an online Course Notification Form and submit it to the AAOS. The purpose of this form is to link participants to the ATT Course Coordinator and ATT Course they registered for. This link will ensure that participants successfully completed the mandatory Precourse Online Module prior to attending the On-Site Module and it will automatically populate the course roster, saving the Course Coordinator from having to enter the information manually.Here is how the process works:1. Course Coordinators submit a Course Notification Form for an upcoming ATT Course2. Participants register for the upcoming ATT Course3. Participants log into the Precourse Online Module, during the process, they are asked to select the ATT Course Coordinator and ATT Course they registered for4. All participant data is automatically populated into the course roster
36Course Notification Form (2 of 2) Also on the Course Notification Form, Course Coordinators are asked to notify the AAOS if the courses are open to the public. These open courses will be publicized on the ATT web site.
