Knife crime is a persistent and worrying concern, especially as it impacts particularly upon young people and the disadvantaged, and various remedies have been tried over the years.
In 2019, the recorded number of knife crime offences reached a record high across the UK, and unfortunately the number of crimes involving a knife or sharp instrument is consistently on the rise.
So, how could you help treat or prevent incidents of criminal trauma?
Chaired by Ryan Baron, Regional Director for the North West, accompanied by a panel of local and national expert speakers, we will be delivering sessions on:
- The management of trauma injuries for all surgeons
- Managing major trauma incidents and coordinating response teams
- How we can work together to improve trauma outcomes and support the prevention of criminal trauma
Who should attend?
This conference is open to all career grades and specialties.
If you are interested in the management of patients with life-threatening injuries and would like to know how you can support the region and the police to help reduce hospital admissions related to criminal trauma, join us on Tuesday 5 May.
