National Fire and Rescue Service Trauma Conference 2015

Monday 20th April 2015- 1:04 am
The 8th National Fire & Rescue Service Trauma Conference will be held on Monday 20th April 2015 at Park Inn Hotel in Telford. This popular study day which used to be held at West Midlands Fire Service moved to join the multi-disciplinary TraumaCare conference in 2014. This year some interesting talks included how to ventilate a patient effectively; the role of patient self-extrication; whether a Plan B is always necessary; up to date burn management; and pre-hospital amputation. The cost was 50 for the whole day. In 2015, there will again be medical speakers who are national experts in their fields talking about how you as a firefighter can impact on the trauma patients managment and survival. For further information (or if there is a specific medical topic you would like to see covered) please contact caroline.leech@uhcw.nhs.uk.
