Trauma is a widespread issue globally. The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) training course is mandatory in 80 countries and promotes a common language among healthcare providers. Until now, it has not been available in Palestine. The disparities in care between Palestinian and Israeli hospitals present an opportunity for cooperation that results in better health services.
Rozana's Trauma Program
Together with USAID and Operating Together, an initiative of the Trauma Unit at Wolfson Medical Center, we provide Palestinian physicians access to a fully-funded, certified ATLS course. We facilitate two-day training seminar every two months for 10 Palestinian and 10 Israeli physicians at Wolfson Medical Center. We also host an annual conference for graduates and leaders in the trauma field.
In addition, Rozana offers Trauma Training at hospitals including Tel Aviv Medical Center and Soroka Medical Center.
- Improved survival rates for trauma victims in the region.
- Professional development opportunities for Palestinian physicians.
- Cross-border network of 400 Palestinian and Israeli trauma physicians consulting in real time, based on professional, personal, and collective relationships.
