TRAUMA CARE


About Trauma Care

Trauma Care was founded in 1996 to address the need for commonly agreed standards of best clinical practice in the management of trauma. We aim to improve the outcome of the trauma victim by establishing best practice throughout the whole chain of care. We achieve this through education, research and publishing. Membership is open to to all medical disciplines - including clinicians, paramedics, nurses - and to members of the emergency services. No other organisation encompasses the diverse specialities involved in care of trauma victims from the moment of injury, to the return to active life.

Events and Conferences

We host a series of online and face-to-face CPD events delivering the latest in learning, developments and information within the Trauma Care sphere. You can catch-up on all of our previous webinars and annual conference talks via our website.

Charity and Fundraising

The charity supports research in the field and a variation of educational opportunities throughout the year. We have some excellent volunteers who help raise money for the charity, with some using our Gold Bond London Marathon places.

INTERNATIONAL TRAUMA CARE CONFERENCE

SAVE THE DATE 7TH - 11TH MARCH 2021

Trauma Care Conference is an established part of the UK Trauma year. We attract a spectrum of distinguished speakers from all specialities and professions providing a unique blend of subjects. 

This means the Trauma Care Conference is not just a doctors’ conference, but rather a great opportunity for everyone to learn together. In 2021 we have something a little different to offer you.

FIVE DAYS

Moving into 2021, we have extended the full Conference to run over 5 days (previously this had been 4 days) so that we can cover a range of hot topics for all healthcare professionals. 

TWENTY THEMES

Our community have identified some unmissable themes and topics to be covered this year. Some will be split into 1/2 day sessions with added flexibility for you to move between programmes.

EVENING EVENTS

The success of our evening canapés and practical sessions in 2020 means we will be offer even more opportunities to mingle with the team and make this an enjoyable experience for all.

Closed Chest Compressions in Traumatic Cardiac Arrest – Good, Bad or Indifferent

Presented by Dr. Sarah Watt

Wed 8th July 2020 at 8pm

***LIVE EVENT ONLY***

The purpose of the talk is to stimulate debate regarding the utility of closed chest compressions in the context of cardiac arrest due to severe hypovolaemia.

 

The talk will focus on presenting the data from a pre-clinical study that compared the use of closed chest compressions alone or in conjunction with fluid therapy to fluid therapy alone in a model haemorrhage induced cardiac arrest.

Blast Injury: The Science

Presented by Dr. Emrys Kirkman

Wed 8th July 2020 at 8pm

***LIVE EVENT ONLY***

Explosions cause injury by a variety of different mechanisms. Some (a few) are ‘special’ to blast, whilst others such as blunt and penetrating injuries can also be seen in other circumstances. This lecture looks briefly at the forces in an explosion that cause injury and describes the traditional classification of blast injury according to the forces that caused them.  It then goes on to look at examples of specific injuries and combination of injuries, their pathophysiology and finally implications for resuscitation.

THE NEED

" Trauma is a serious public health problem, with notable social and economic costs. In the UK, 17,000 deaths each year are a direct result of injuries. Annually, injuries lead to 720,000 hospital admissions and 6 million visits to emergency departments. Victims of trauma receive care and attention from many individuals within a wide range of specialities and professional backgrounds. Without commonly agreed standards, patients’ outcome may be less than optimal. "


BECOME A TRAUMA CARE MEMBER

The key to a successful future for Trauma Care lies in it's members. We are delighted that membership is growing at a very healthy rate and we have as members doctors, nurses, paramedics, first responders, physiotherapists, remote environment medics, military medical personnel, members of the other emergency services and health care administrators.

 

Trauma Care is unique. No other organisation brings together such a wide range of professionals.

Our aims are clear: to improve patient care by education, publishing and research.
