2017 Fall Trauma Workshop

December 1, 2017

The challenges of providing quality trauma care continue. Trauma providers are expected to have advanced knowledge and skills in diagnosis, treatment and on‐going management. The goal of the 2017 Fall Trauma Workshop is to present the most current clinical information available about the care of the injured patient. To meet this goal, we have coordinated an outstanding program with faculty who are providing front-line care. This dynamic conference will address cutting edge trauma care issues. Our target audience includes nurses, prehospital providers, advanced practice providers, physicians and allied health professionals.
