The Trauma 2018 Research Forum invites you to submit a summary of current research projects for presentation. This will allow researchers to present their work for feedback regarding clinical application, engaging others in multi-institutional projects, and constructive feedback on how to improve the study design. It will also allow researchers to present work that presents significant logistical challenges so that others may learn from their experience. Registration for the workshop is free of charge, however places will be prioritised to those who have a project to present. Project summaries should be emailed to the Trauma Conference Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org
This multi-disciplinary, team-focused interactive workshop will provide an overview of the knowledge and skills essential to provide safe airway management. It will focus on identifying and safely managing those at high risk of airway difficulty. During the 3 hour workshop, participants will rotate through presentations, small group discussions, hands-on skills stations, and mini-scenario/simulations relevant to a broad range of clinician backgrounds, facilitated by a team of airway experts. Pre-reading will provide essential background on the concepts required to make safe airway management a “team sport” in which effective communication and the use of cognitive aids can prevent or avert a crisis situation.
