UW Medicine EMS & Trauma Conference 2018

September 17, 2018 - September 18, 2018

The course is sponsored annually by Harborview Medical Center and Airlift Northwest. Harborview is the designated Level I trauma center for Washington State as well as the trauma and burn referral center for Washington, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho (WAMI).

This two-day multi-disciplinary conference highlights current issues in trauma care throughout the continuum: pre-hospital, emergency, critical care, acute care, and rehabilitation. Nationally recognized speakers and local experts in trauma care will present topics pertinent to nurses, physicians, paramedics, social workers, program managers, and other healthcare providers.

Course Objectives

  • Identify critical concerns in the continuum of care for adult and pediatric trauma patients and describe situations where triage to higher levels of care may be indicated.
  • Discuss new modalities and cutting-edge advances in trauma care in both pre-hospital and hospital environments.
  • Identify recent evidence to answer questions of trauma care previously only practiced by tradition.
  • State the principles of effective patient triage and patient tracking during response to a mass-casualty incident.


The conference is recommended for all healthcare and pre-hospital providers
