On behalf of the Abu Dhabi Trauma Systems Committee (ADTSC), I would like to welcome attendees to the first annual Abu Dhabi Trauma Conference, which is being held May 25-26, 2022 at the Dusit Thani hotel in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
This event will leverge the knowledge and expertise of internationally-recognized experts in trauma care to discuss the latest evidence and practice in caring for injured patients across all phases of care. The program includes a robust agenda of three simultaneous tracks spread over two days addressing different aspects of trauma care. Topics will include pre-hospital trauma care, emergency and trauma nursing, complex trauma management, performance improvement, CBRNE and trauma, and management strategies for injured pediatric patients. Participants will be able to move between sessions and tracks to tailor their experience to best meet their individual needs.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the leadership and support provided by the Abu Dhabi Department of Health in establishing this international forum, and it is my hope that you will join us at the inaugural conference.
I look forward to seeing you in May!
