The London Trauma Conference will again run over two days (Thursday 12th and Friday 13th December).
A wide range of relevant material will be covered by around twenty experts from the UK and six other countries.
Hot and core topics covered will include receiving the bleeding trauma patient, clearing the spine, trauma in obstetrics, trauma airway management, ophthalmological trauma and a patient perspective of pre-hospital REBOA.
On Thursday there will be a session consisting of three talks on key aspects of abdominal trauma with an interactive panel discussion.
A similar session structure will be presented on Friday focussing on paediatric trauma. Two sessions will examine how applying science and innovation might improve mortality.
Much of the remaining time in the two day conference will examine diverse and novel approaches to improving care delivered in effective trauma systems. This year’s keynote Peter Baskett Lecture is Making trauma teams work by Professor Peter Brindley from Canada.
Other topics that will be covered include fatigue in emergency care, dealing with trauma deaths, innovations in the provision of US military trauma care and clinical trauma innovations in a leading US EMS, the ‘primary’ trauma transfer from the non-trauma centre, thoughts on conflict surgery from a leading MSF trauma surgeon, tackling knife crime in the young, conducting a trauma resuscitation in the operating room to the same standard as the emergency department and decision making in trauma resuscitation.
The conference will be of interest to a broad range of clinicians and practitionerswho know the basics but want highlevel knowledge and interaction with experts who are at the cutting edge of current practice and research.
