Care of the injured is rapidly evolving. The recent call for zero preventable deaths has sharpened our efforts to both critically evaluate the way we currently care for trauma patients, and search for innovations which will make that goal achievable. At the same time, the “Silver Tsunami” of elderly injured continues to overwhelm our trauma centers with patients who are in poor health, many with an already limited life expectancy prior to their current injury. These complications add to the challenges already faced by trauma and emergency medical providers when it comes to providing both reasonable and compassionate care to injured seniors. 


This conference will focus on both critical review of current practice and the innovations which will change the way we care for the injured, including elderly patients. Nationally renowned speakers will present state of the art management of life threatening emergencies commonly encountered in the field. Conference speakers will include specialists in the fields of pre-hospital care, trauma surgery, and critical care. Lectures, real-life case presentations, and interactive sessions will engage attendees and promote improved patient outcomes.
