Meet the AfterTrauma team and get involved with injury research!

The team behind AfterTrauma - the Centre for Trauma Sciences (C4TS) -  is holding an event on Tuesday 11th September to talk about their world-leading research in traumatic injury, and the many different ways members of the public and former patients can help. You don’t need to be a scientist or a doctor to have a huge impact on shaping new and better treatments for people who have suffered serious injury!

The C4TS team will talk about their research and achievements to date, and lay people already involved in research will share what they have gained from their experiences. Drinks and nibbles will follow. The agenda is below:

15:30 Tea & Registration

16:00 What is Trauma? Why bother with Research? (Professor Karim Brohi)

16:15 Trauma Systems: the chain of survival (Dr Elaine Cole)

16:30 How is that ethical? Clinical research with the severely injured (Claire Rourke)

16:45 Science of the Bleeding Obvious! A decade of research success (Dr Ross Davenport)

17:00 Break

17:15 Why be an advocate for clinical research? What’s in it for you? (Ngawai Moss)

17:30 How lay advisors advance trauma care and science (James Piercy)

Drinks reception, nibbles and socialising!

There will also be stands by Barts Charity, AfterTrauma, and displays of information and interactive games from C4TS public engagement activities.
