This 2-day e-Master Class, led by a multidisciplinary panel of international experts aims to prepare participants to manage trauma patients – from the pre-hospital or “ground zero” stage to OR and ICU. It will review foundational surgical and resuscitation strategies and utilise clinical scenarios and live simulations to ensure attendees are up-to-date on the most recent trauma practice. Due to the current uncertain context, the master class has been re-formatted into virtual training, making use of agile virtual environments and responsive innovative solutions. Join us for this new adventure!
