INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Please take a minute to let Philip Boudjouk, Ph.D., know that you want North Dakota State University (NDSU) to stop its use of live animals in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) courses. In an April 15, 2009, Fargo Forum article, Dr. Boudjouk was paraphrased as saying that “if there is a viable alternative [to the use of animals in ATLS training], [he would] explore the option.” We have provided text for you, but if you decide to write your own message, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:

Please replace the use of animals in NDSU’s ATLS courses immediately.
Simulation alternatives have been approved to teach these procedures by the American College of Surgeons.

95 percent of ATLS courses in both the United States and Canada use the TraumaMan System or other human-based methods.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
