Hawaiian Islands TRAUMA SYMPOSIUM @ Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, Coral Ballroom
Aug 10 – Aug 11 all-day

About the Symposium
In Hawai‘i, trauma injuries are responsible for more deaths of children and young adults, ages 1 through 40, than all other causes combined. Among residents of all ages, injury is the third leading cause of death, both locally and nationally. On an average week in Hawai‘i, 13 residents die from an injury, another 109 are hospitalized, and nearly 1,600 others are treated in emergency departments.

While fatal injuries represent less than 1% of all injuries requiring medical attention; the majority of non-fatal injuries have the greatest public health implications. This includes human suffering, long term disabilities, productive life years lost, and a staggering financial cost for medical treatment and care. The physical, emotional, economic, and societal burden of trauma is one we all share.

In Hawai‘i, our unique trauma system is led by the Emergency Medical Services and Injury
Prevention System Branch of the Department of Health to ensure a coordinated approach for providing optimal care of injured patients across our island communities. They also help sponsor our annual Hawaiian Islands Trauma Symposium; a two-day program of cutting-edge, evidencebased presentations and discussions directed at a wide variety of current issues related to care of the trauma patient. Our multidisciplinary faculty of locally and nationally renowned leaders will undoubtedly expand your knowledge in the ever evolving field of Trauma.

We hope you join our comprehensive mix of pre-hospital providers, trauma technicians, nurses, therapists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, trauma program personnel, physicians, and other health care professionals. You each play an essential role in our unique trauma system and the care of Hawai‘i’s injured patients, whether kama‘aina or malihini. Welina mai.
