Welcome to

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 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

VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

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.

GOING VIRTUAL

This year we will be going completely virtual, providing you with the added flexibility to move between programmes using your virtual day pass. You will also benefit from access to recorded talks.

The C-ABC of Recognising and

Treating Heat Stroke

Presented by Lt Col. Mike Stacey RAMC

Wed 27th January 2021 at 8pm

 

Heat stress is a perennial source of morbidity and mortality and stands to play an ever-greater role in shaping human activities in the decades ahead.

 

The prevention of incapacity and illness associated with heat stress has been regarded as an unenviable task, yet understanding and action in this area is critical to preserving health and wellbeing across a range of occupational and recreational settings.

 

Differentiating causes of incapacity under heat stress can be challenging and lowers the bar for suspecting and treating where life-threatening heat stroke is suspected; prompt and effective cooling may dramatically improve outcomes.

 

Work is ongoing to establish how best to support and prognosticate for the worst affected and determine how and when return-to-play/duty should be attempted.

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. "
