The Challenge of Trauma – Your Health Matters Public Talk on 13 December 6 pm

Nov 20, 2023 | Members e-Bulletin, Your Health Matters

The challenge of trauma explores the need for coordinated multidisciplinary care delivered to tight timelines in a resource limited environment. Patients present a wide and complex range of problems from multiple injuries in the young to disabling injuries in the elderly, with increasing multiple injuries in older patients. Most patients will require a varied team of professionals to manage their care immediately from the time of injury and will need pre-hospital, emergency department and definitive care. This talk outlines the achievements, limitations and aspirations of trauma care.
