Event Details

Come join us for Duke University Hospital’s 28th Annual Trauma Symposium on March 29, 2018.  We have an array of remarkable speakers presenting on a wide variety of interesting, evolving and evidence based trauma best practices.

The challenges of providing quality trauma care continue. Trauma providers are expected to have advanced knowledge and skills in diagnosis, treatment and on-going management. The goal of Duke University Hospital’s Trauma Conference is to present the most current clinical information available about the care of the injured patient. To meet this goal, we have coordinated an outstanding program with faculty who are providing frontline care. This dynamic conference will address cutting edge trauma care issues.

Our target audience is nurses, pre-hospital providers, advanced practice providers, physicians and allied health professionals.
