Course Director: Associate Prof Richard Cracknell

The aim of this workshop is to introduce primary care providers to a structured approach to caring for the injured during the crucial window of opportunity, the Golden hour. It is a basic yet substantive workshop aimed to familiarise the concepts of primary, secondary and tertiary surveys during trauma management. Though attending this workshop won’t qualify you as a trauma care provider, it will certainly familiarise you with vital concepts and lay a base foundation for further learning. It will be taught by experienced educators and skilled trauma specialists from around the world.
