Description

2016 Central Clinical School Public Lecture:
Innovative systems of trauma care

Injury causes 5.8 million deaths per year with 90% in low- and middle-income countries. It also causes a significant amount of disability and economic loss. Much of this burden could be decreased by improvements in the care of the injured (trauma care).

Professor Mark Fitzgerald, Director of both the Trauma Services at The Alfred and of the National Trauma Research Institute, will give an overview of trauma system research and development, how we’re using it here, and how we’re helping other countries, both in the developed and developing world, to either build or improve their own systems of trauma care.
