On behalf of the Organising Committee, I would like to invite abstract submissions for presentation at the National Trauma Symposium 2020 to be held at the Wharewaka Function Centre, Wellington, NZ on Thursday 6 August 2020.
Our programme will include scientific presentation and debate of the highest level and will attract a wide variety of trauma practitioners from across New Zealand. It represents an excellent forum for presentation of your research and as organisers we strongly support this opportunity for you to share your knowledge and ideas with a wider audience.
We are encouraging submissions from the following areas: Critical Haemorrhage, Trauma Outcomes and Rehabilitation.
We look forward to receiving your submissions and joining us as part of this exciting conference in 2020.
