"The annual UW Medicine EMS and Trauma Conference is the highlight of the year for regional trauma, critical care and burn education in the Pacific Northwest. This year is no exception with exciting sessions such on How to Prepare your hospital and healthcare system for a mass shooting event which will draw on the lessons learned in Las Vegas, October 1, 2017. This session will include speakers from the Level 1, 2 and 3 centers that were engaged in this tragic event. We will also have an exciting session on addressing violence in our society including how to set up a hospital-based violence intervention program and how to implement suicide prevention efforts. We will learn from the experts about what is new in prehospital care and acute resuscitation for severely injured patients and the growing use of extracorporeal life support for critically ill adults. Above all this is a tremendous opportunity to network and build relationships with care providers throughout our diverse geographic region! I hope you can join us!"
