Your health matters: the challenge of trauma

Wednesday 13 December 2023 6.30pm - 8.00pm (refreshments from 6.00pm)
Lecture Theatre 1, Academic Centre, John Radcliffe Hospital


Mark Ainsworth-Smith
Consultant Pre-Hospital Care Practitioner, South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust

John Black
Chief Medical Officer, South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust

Bob Handley
Consultant Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeon, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust


The challenge of trauma explores the need for co-ordinated multidisciplinary care delivered to tight timelines in a resource limited environment.

Patients present a wide and complex range of problems from multiple injuries in the young to disabling injuries in the elderly, with increasing multiple injuries in older patients.

Most patients will require a varied team of professionals to manage their care immediately from the time of injury and will need pre-hospital, emergency department and definitive care.

This talk outlines the achievements, limitations and aspirations of trauma care.

Come along and learn how to give CPR, watch demonstrations and talk to the Here for Health team.
