The 52nd Annual Emergency Care and Trauma Symposium is designed to educate emergency and trauma providers, from the prehospital environment through inpatient care. Education for EMS and nursing will be offered, with a wide variety of presentations and hands-on sessions available. The Symposium is provided by the UW Health Emergency Education Center in conjunction with UW Health and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
Participants will gain knowledge and self-confidence in identifying strategies that can be incorporated into healthcare practices to assess, manage, and potentially prevent complications during traumatic and emergency events; improve upon gaps in their own practices and within their settings; and be able to identify current trends of trauma and emergency medicine principles for practical healthcare application.
The Symposium will take place June 1-24 with 3-hour sessions on June 1, 4, 7, 10, 15, 18, 21, and 24.
