Conference Day Two

In association with Defence Medical Services

Wednesday 28 September


Main Conference: Left and Right of Bang

Day two of Trauma Innovation aims to showcase the current academic work being undertaken by the Defence Medical Services and its many outstanding collaborators both from within the UK and internationally in the area of ballistic and blast injury. 

The conference will:

  • Identify the concepts surrounding risk management required to provide medical support for contingency operations
  • Discuss the mitigation factors which may be used in the future to reduce injury severity or provide early information regarding the patient to improve management decision making
  • Provide areas of interest to those in industry with already available products that could be developed further to assist in advancing measures for mitigation
  • Demonstrate new methods of patient management in order to improve morbidity
  • Identify areas that will require long term planning, both for Defence and the NHS, in the treatment of military injured personnel

Topics include:

  • Understanding the Concepts of “Left of Bang”
  • Protective Clothing: What have we learnt and how are we developing?
  • Reducing the effects of blast wave transmission in vehicles
  • Concepts of Sensors and pre-injury monitoring: What knowledge are we gaining from our sporting colleagues?
  • Developing Prolonged Field Care for Contingency
  • In situ simulation: How can we encourage rehearsal?

Who should attend?

The aspiration of this year’s Trauma Innovation Conference is to bring together all specialties of health care professionals, at all levels, including consultants, nurses and pre-hospital care practitioners, in order to undertake wide ranging discussions to demonstrate the current directions of academic study within the overarching umbrella of military trauma. The conference will also appeal to those working within academia, in all fields of study from engineering to pharmaceuticals, with an interest in developing collaborations for the improvement of managing ballistic and blast injury patterns. Finally, Industry should be able to identify areas for co-operation and partnership between both Defence and interested academics which may enable the early exploitation of already available equipment but in alternative areas of use.
