"Following a successful launch of the 1st Disaster Surgery Workshop Davos in December 2011, the 2nd Disaster Surgery Workshop Davos is going to be held from 6 – 7 December 2013, in Davos, Switzerland and will take place back-to-back with the traditional AO Foundation Davos Courses.
Organised in close collaboration with the AO Foundation Davos under the theme Disaster Surgery Under Critical Environmental Conditions, the workshop aims to enhance surgical treatment during disaster relief. A special focus will be set on clinical competency, but also on the need for evidence based controlling of intervention activities, on data collection and long-term perspectives and evaluation of intervention activities.
The workshop will be led by top experts in the fields of disaster surgery and disaster management and thus additionally provide ideal opportunities for networking and for knowledge and experience exchange."
