Overview: Death from trauma remains one of the major causes of death in the early decades of life. Uncontrolled haemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable death in the trauma setting and is a significant burden on healthcare internationally. The landscape of trauma care and trauma surgery has evolved significantly over the past decade. This course aims to empower the delegates to be able to deal with the major trauma patient as if this is the first day in a job at a major trauma centre. Then push them further to start to think about planning for a mass casualty incident.
