Trauma is the third leading cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of disability in young Americans. The care of injured and critically ill patients is complex and challenging.
The focus of the Trauma and Critical Care Conference is to provide clear guidelines for practicing clinicians who manage such patients with the emphasis of the continuum of care for trauma and critical care patients from pre-hospital to rehabilitation. This program offers comprehensive knowledge and skills in the treatment of critically ill and injured patients, offering an ideal mix of the current standard-of-care principles and cutting edge information and technology for evaluation, diagnosis and management.
