The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children announce the 17th Annual John M. Templeton Jr. Pediatric Trauma Symposium.
Trauma is the leading cause of childhood death and disability. However, pediatric trauma care continues to provide significant and unique challenges. This two-day national symposium will provide the healthcare practitioner with up-to-date clinical information for the management of injured children and their families. Current issues will be addressed across the continuum of trauma care.
Since its inception in 2001, the John M. Templeton Jr. Pediatric Trauma Symposium has grown to be a nationally recognized resource for cutting-edge as well as basic multidisciplinary pediatric trauma education — a one-of-a-kind conference.
