For this year’s practical stations, we will be including 2 fully functional inflatable operating theatres, pioneered and developed by Imperial College London that provides simulated surgical training. Examples of other stations include intubation, usage of FAST scanners and venous cutdown.
We are also pleased to announce that we will be accepting abstracts for the Trauma Conference 2010 poster competition.
The abstracts will have to be on a topic related to trauma medicine or surgery. Accompanying images are allowed to be included with the abstract in the form of a poster.
