Investigating the rise in emergency trauma surgery, London
Now accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons for up to 2 CPD points.
In recent years, our cities have become the victims of terrorist atrocities. Hundreds of citizens have been injured and killed through a series of targeted attacks that are impossible to predict.
So how do hospitals respond to such events? What systems are in place to cope, and is the current training programme for junior doctors and surgeons enough to face the realities of the moments following an attack?
Join us on Tuesday, 30 October for an evening of short talks, interactive discussion and networking, when we'll be joined by speakers who've experienced the severity of these attacks first hand.
What will I gain from attending?
- An insight into the realities of dealing with terror attacks.
- An analysis of the lessons learnt from these attacks, from those present both at the scene and in the hospital context.
- A chance to hear the wider trainee perspective on the topic, as voiced by BOTA, ASiT, and London trainee Dr Nadia Guidozzi
- The opportunity to quiz those experienced in the field, and learn how this might influence your surgical career.
