2017 Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM) 61st Annual Scientific Conference
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of The Medical College of Wisconsin and Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine. The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
AMA Credit Designation Statement
The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this Live Activity for a maximum of 19.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Hours of Participation for Allied Health Care Professionals
The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this activity for up to 19.75 hours of participation for continuing education for allied health professionals.
The program is intended for emergency physicians and nurses, orthopedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, neurosurgeons, radiologists, physiatrist, urologists, emergency medical personnel, biomechanics and vehicle design engineers, automotive engineers, crash investigators, health policy specialists, internists, psychologists, epidemiologists, other human factor specialists, accident reconstructionists and road safety experts as well as other clinicians and allied health professionals, representatives from the insurance industry and automotive engineering professionals.
Participants in this conference will be exposed to newest research in the following areas:
- Analyzing and developing techniques to modify driver behavior to decrease crash incidence
- Understanding kinematics and mechanisms of injury in crashes, with a goal of amelioration through engineering
- Injury patterns associated with vehicular crashes, their classification and clinical outcomes
Participants will be able to discuss and present to others (including fellow clinicians and interested others) current concepts in driver factors, including alcohol utilization, driving experience, distraction) and describe strategies for improvement. They will understand the role of human kinematics in vehicular crashes, and-using information presented at this conference-be able to suggest possible injuries associated with specific types of forces, restraint systems, and human characteristics, such as size and age. They will be able to consider goals for injury reduction.
