Event description

Description


Police data shows knife crime has more than doubled in West Midlands since 2012, with 700 victims in the region just last year. The number of crimes involving a knife or sharp instrument is on the rise, with over 60 stabbing offences in an average week. Knife wounds can be fatal or leave patients with chronic health problems. So, how can surgeons contribute to help prevent incidents of knife crime and reduce the harm caused by knife wounds?


Programme

A panel of expert speakers will be delivering sessions on:

- Management of knife wounds injuries (abdominal, chest and other trauma injuries);

- reasons, outcomes and the West Midlands' experience.

- the role of the RCS and the development of emergency trauma as specialty.


Who should attend?

This conference is open to all career grades and specialities. If you are interested in the management of patients with immedicately life-threatening injuries and would like to know how you can support the region and the police to help reduce hospital admissions due to knife assaults, this is an event for you.


The full conference programme will be announced soon.
