OHSU is pleased to present the 29th Annual Northwest States Trauma Conference.

We have assembled a nationally-recognized faculty to give you the most up-to-date information about care of the injured patient, including trauma care during the pre-hospital, resuscitative, operative, critical care and recovery phases. The target audience for this conference is physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals.

Our distinguished national guest speakers this year include Dr. Alex Eastman from University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dr. Alison Wilson from West Virginia University and Martin Keller from St. Louis Children's Hospital.

At the conclusion of the course, attendees will have an increased knowledge of issues such as:

  • Rural Trauma
  • Crew resource management
  • Pitfalls of transfers
  • Management of anti-coagulated patients
  • Echocardiogram, CT and their role in cardiac injury
  • Wilderness medicine
  • Pediatric trauma
  • Burnout
  • Case studies in cardiac trauma
  • Trauma Top 10 research
  • Reliability assessment
