Health care professionals from across Australia, as well as China, India, Ireland, Saudi Arabia and the United States joined us for the latest RCH Victorian Trauma Grand Round.
The Trauma Grand Rounds present medical problems and treatments of particular patients to large audiences of pertinent health professionals.
More than 600 people registered to attend the latest event, which was live-streamed to metropolitan and regional hospitals in Victoria, Ambulance Victoria stations, Australia-wide healthcare sites and to participants around the world.
The program, entitled “Paediatric blunt abdominal trauma. ‘Hands off?’ – How and why we do things differently,” was designed to equip and enable people working in the trauma community to recognise and respond to abdominal trauma, with trauma experts from the RCH sharing their expertise and case studies.
Director Trauma Warwick Teague said he was once again proud of the Trauma team’s work to deliver a successful event.
“It takes a huge team effort to deliver this event and we’re very lucky to have such a dedicated and committed team, who are passionate about providing trauma education to our metropolitation, regional, national and international colleagues,” he said.
“It’s an outstanding example of living out our Compact commitment to teamwork and finding new ways to learn and improve, and I’m delighted we are able to share this work so broadly.
“Seeing people connect with us from across Australia – and even internationally – is really exciting and a valuable opportunity to share some of the work being done at our great hospital.”
The event generated positive feedback across the RCH Twitter feed, with healthcare professionals from across the world sharing their feedback.
