On November 7, Main Line Health will offer its annual Trauma Symposium designed for physicians, nurses, mid-level providers, pre-hospital emergency medical service personnel and other interested allied health care professionals.

Having received wide acclaim from our attendees, our dynamic expert speakers address the key concerns identified in today’s trauma care arena and the impact on patient outcomes, which is the key to its success. The Main Line Health Annual Trauma Symposium will feature presentations on the latest advances and topics in trauma, while emphasizing the importance of quality patient care. The program will end with a trauma story presentation.

At the conclusion of the symposium participants should be able to discuss the most current trends in trauma care and the impact trauma has on patients, families and health care providers. Additional objectives include:

  • Stating specific end of life considerations when caring for specific trauma patients
  • Recognizing clinical issues specific to pediatric trauma patients
  • Illustrate the latest strategies and techniques for optimal care in the trauma care setting related to crush injuries
  • Identifying specific strategies or new advances to implement as part of a continuing improvement process for their practice
