Anniversary Seminars: Trauma surgery
Severe injuries cause great suffering and are the most frequent cause of death in the age group from 1 to 44 years in the Western world. The seminar will be held in Norwegian.
The seminar will focus on several aspects of the treatment and prevention of severe injuries:
- How is trauma treatment organized at one of Europe’s leading trauma centres?
- How does this system function: can we measure the quality of the treatment?
- How did it function in connection with the tragedy on 22 July 2011?
- What can be done to reduce child injuries in motor vehicle collisions?
