LTC 2015 Day 1 Summary

Greetings from the London Trauma Conference!

As has become our pre-Christmas custom, Iain and I have been hanging out at the fabulous London Trauma Conference, hearing about advances and controversies in trauma care and tracking down some of the speakers to find out exactly what they really think (and recording it, for podcasts we'll release in due course).

The conference extends over four days, incorporating the Air Ambulance and Prehospital Day and the Cardiac Arrest Symposium; unfortunately we can't stick around for those but our colleagues over at the RCEM FOAM network will be podcasting from those days too, so keep an eye on their site and podcast feed too.

Youri Yordanov: Lessons learned from the November Paris attacks. St.Emlyn’s

We are truly honored to listen and learn from Dr Youri Yordanov from Paris. Youri was the senior emergency physician on duty on the 13/11/15 during the brutal and terrifying terrorist attacks in Paris. Here he joins St.Emlyn's to discuss how they managed a mass casualty incident with lessons for us all.

There is no doubt that without the skills, preparation and response of Youri, his ED team, the wider hospital and the emergency service in general the death rate would have been much worse.

Thanks Youri for your wisdom and reflections.

Managing grief in the ED with Liz Crowe

Liz Crowe has delivered some great talks at SMACC, and her talents do not stop there. In her real job she is a social worker on PICUs in Australia. She has a wealth of experience at helping people through difficult times and she shares that with us here on the podcast.

In truth this is something we planned to do when we were all in Chicago but the podcast has added poignancy following the tragic death of John Hinds. Although planned as a stand alone subject we cannot help but contextualise the topic in light of recent tragic events.

We hope it helps now and in the future.

RIP John Hinds
