​Registration is now open for the launch of the Major Trauma Audit National Report 2019 and 2020. This event will take place on Wednesday 14th September from 10.30am-12.45pm via webinar.

This report focuses on a period of time when Ireland’s health service underwent unprecedented challenges due to the global COVID-19 pandemic which began in 2020. It provides insights into how changes in the health system during this time affected the profile of major trauma and the standard of care for major trauma patients. The report also provides data on the volume and type of injuries sustained during the pandemic, the access to vital services for major trauma patients and outcomes. In addition, it provides insights into how the mechanism of injury changed during a period when most of the population’s day-to-day activities were restricted during lockdowns.

CPD points will be available for this event.

Registration is available via the button below. The draft agenda is also available to view below.
