The goals of the World Coalition for Trauma Care are:
1. To increase awareness of the importance of trauma as a disease worldwide
2. Trauma Education at all levels worldwide
3. Development of trauma systems worldwide
4. Continuation of the World Trauma Congress
We can only accomplish those goals at a global level if we stay together as a group of people and powerful professional organizations and start implementing change worldwide. Our organizations (and their members) have the opportunity to exert international influence, help less developed nations to improve care by means of better education and knowledge, critical thinking towards systems development, data collection (trauma registries and injury surveillance), and implementation of quality improvement processes.
The Panamerican Trauma Society in collaboration with the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma-International Relations Committee (AAST-IRC) and the World Coalition of Trauma Care invites you to join a panel of experts from multiple medical and surgical societies and educational institutions from around the world, to share information about the current situation on their locations about COVID-19, new challenges and treatments.
The webinar will be coordinated by Drs. Antonio Marttos and Michel Aboutanos and is hosted by the University of Miami in collaboration with PTS headquarters at Virginia Commonwealth University.
