Midwest Regional Trauma/Acute Care Surgery Symposium and Military/Civilian Research Colloquium: Neuroscience Innovations 2019: A Combined Conference

Milwaukee, WI US
June 3, 2019 to June 5, 2019

The Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Surgery, Comprehensive Injury Center, the Center for Neurotrauma Research, and Neuroscience Research Center present A Combined Conference: Midwest Regional Trauma/Acute Care Surgery and Military/Civilian Research Colloquium: Neuroscience Innovations. The pre-symposium skill courses on Monday, June 3 will occur at the Medical College of Wisconsin, 8701 Watertown Plank Road, Milwaukee, WI, 53226. The symposia will be held Tuesday, June 4 and Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at Potawatomi Hotel and Casino, Woodland Ballroom,1721 W Canal Street, Milwaukee, WI 53233.

This three-day long educational activity is designed to provide updates and general information regarding the practice of emergency general surgery, surgical critical care, and trauma care.

Acute Care Surgery continues to evolve as a defined surgical expertise within the surgical community. The increasing severity of illness, gaining population and number of comorbidities of patients has resulted in a need for a special set of skills and knowledge in caring for the acutely ill patient. Trauma surgeons with expertise in critical care and emergency surgical procedures are well positioned as a core resource for others involved in the care of this patient population in the community. Many new developments in critical care, trauma and emergency general surgery have recently occurred and continue to evolve necessitating continued education. Topics of greatest interest due to recent developments in management include, ultrasound, rib fixation, trauma skills for both ER physicians and surgeons, best practices for open abdomen, geriatric trauma, brain injury and psychological effects of trauma.

The military/ civilian collaboration will allow us to address topics such as PTSD, TBI and SCI as well as a research presentation session.  By combining all of our efforts,we will be able to more effectively provide the necessary knowledge needed by all attendees.
