On September 14, the first in Russia official branch office of the international non-profit organization International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) will open in the Tomsk Special economic zone during the II International research-to-practice conference Remote healthcare – the modern solution of the problem.
“We are the only ones in Russia who have been giving a course on ITLS since 2015. The opening of the official representative office means that we will now be able to train instructors and open our training centers throughout the country,” – said Munirjon Shakirov, ITLS Cource-Director in Russia.
The status of Russia’s first certified branch of ITLS International was obtained by Alfamed-Training following an audit that took place in March this year. In July the board of directors of the international organization decided to open a branch office of ITLS International in Tomsk. The opening ceremony on September 14 will be attended by Anton Posavec, chapter-coordinator of ITLS Slovenia, and Jonathan Epstein, Chairman of ITLS International.
“The representative office will open in Tomsk but we have already begun to expand our geography. Today the instructors of ITLS prepared in our center are working in Moscow, Murmansk, Kazakhstan, and we plan to strengthen our presence in regions”, said Munirjon Shakirov. “The course is designed for medical and non-medical professionals at plants. Each graduate gets teamwork skills and the understanding of the sequence of proper medial aid. We work out every step, which prevents being at a loss in a real situation and allows the person to start acting”.
ITLS is an intense course on extended pre-hospital medical trauma care for specialists with medical and non-medical backgrounds. The course is considered one of the most reputable among professionals.
