The seminar will focus on several aspects of the treatment and prevention of severe injuries:

  1. How is trauma treatment organized at one of Europe’s leading trauma centres?
  2. How does this system function: can we measure the quality of the treatment?
  3. How did it function in connection with the tragedy on 22 July 2011?
  4. What can be done to reduce child injuries in motor vehicle collisions?
