A non-governmental organization (NGO), Trauma Care International Foundation (TCIF) has concluded plans to host its first-ever trauma conference on Tuesday, November 19, this year with the theme ‘Trauma Care: The Way Forward,’ reports ITREALMS.

Director of TCIF, Dr Deola Philips said, addressing the menace of trauma has become a public health burden in the country, hence the conference.

On the theme ‘Trauma Care: The Way Forward,’ Dr Philips said the objective of the conference is to provide a platform for debate and stimulation of inter-disciplinary discussions in the fields of trauma care and emergency response management.

She also said, the conference will provide a platform for policy makers, senior government officials, the academia, media practitioners, corporate organizations, professional associations, scholars and volunteers from various health and trauma-related disciplines to come together and discuss how their various disciplines can collectively contribute towards the development of workable ways to address trauma as an emerging public health challenge in our society.
