Program Description:

Many health care providers are aware that according to the Centers for Disease Control, unintentional injury remains the number one cause of death for Americans aged 45 years and younger regardless of age, race, or economic status. But consider this:

  • Nearly 199,800 people die from injury every year—that’s 1 person every 3 minutes.

  • For every person that dies, 135 are treated in an emergency room and 13 are hospitalized.

  • 2.5 million people were hospitalized due to injuries in 2014.

  • 26.9 million people were treated in an emergency department for injuries in 2014.1

The purpose of this conference is to support the multidisciplinary team who cares for this patient population on a daily basis. The objective for the program is to enhance the skill of the health care team member to effectively manage the patient needing trauma care. Physicians, nurses, pre-hospital personnel, physical therapists, and occupational therapists, and all other healthcare personnel working with this patient population will benefit from attending this two-day conference.

Americans with Disabilities Act: If you have special needs addressed by this act, please notify us at least two weeks before this offering so that reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate your needs.

Note: Please bring a sweater or jacket due to variations in temperature and personal preferences.
