June 14, 2018

On 12th June, C4TS hosted the second London Major Trauma System symposium at the Royal Geographical Society in South Kensington.

The objective of the symposium was to bring together clinicians from across all four of London’s trauma networks, to share learnings and challenges across the whole spectrum of trauma care.  Over 250 delegates attended, and the poster competition attracted 51 entries.

The range of speakers was highly diverse, representing the multi-disciplinary nature of trauma care. Topics ranged from strategic overviews of where the system is heading as a whole, innovations and learnings in trauma related radiology, pre-hospital care, violence prevention, elderly pathways, rehabilitation and much more



The keynote speaker was Sir Keith Porter, Professor of Clinical Traumatology, who spoke of the development and impact of the Citizen Aid app which equips ordinary civilians with the knowledge and assistance to respond effectively to emergency and disaster situations where people are injured.

The prize for best research poster was won by A. Hudson and O. Morgan for ‘Elderly Trauma Mortality: a single centre review’, with runner up Clinician seniority correlation with CT request times: Implications for workforce management of Trauma Units’ (U. Karamchandani, S. Pascal, P. Baghla)

The prize for best innovation poster was won by M. Murali, L. Bolton, S. Bhatkal for ‘Management of Elderly Trauma at a London DGH: introduction of a Silver Trauma Pathway’, with runner up ‘A hospital-based youth-violence intervention programme benefitting both young people and clinicians: the Redthread model’ (L. Knell-Taylor, R. Astin-Chamberlain, J. Poyton, B. King, E. Sutherland,  T. Fitzgerald)
