Welcome to World Trauma Congress – WTC 2016


About India

Dear Friends,
With immense pleasure, we welcome you to the World Trauma Congress 2016, to be held at New Delhi, India from Aug 17th through 20th, 2016. The congress co-hosted by the Indian Society for Trauma and Acute Care (ISTAC®®) and the World Coalition for Trauma Care (WCTC) will be organized by the J P N Apex Trauma Centre, All India Institute of Medical Sciences. ISTAC® has been actively involved in advancing the knowledge in the field of Trauma and Acute Care through education and research over the years.

The main objective of this congress is to exchange ideas, experiences and lessons learned about the role of internationally accepted systems and protocols in the field of trauma care, mass causality incidents, and disasters. This meeting will enlighten us regarding issues pertaining to Trauma Systems, Trauma Surgery, Trauma Critical Care, Neuro-trauma, Orthopaedic Trauma, Trauma Reconstructive Surgery, Disaster & Military Surgery, Trauma Nursing, Rehabilitation, Injury prevention as well as issues related to the UN Decade of Action on Road Safety. The congress will also include various pre-conference trauma and critical care related courses.

Holistic trauma care, from “resuscitation to rehabilitation” is inclusive of the pivotal role played by the pre-hospital personnel, nursing and rehabilitation colleagues, therefore this congress aims at bringing all specialists in the field of trauma care and allied specialties together.

The congress will bring together delegates and distinguished speakers from across the globe. Being a nascent speciality in major part of the world the congress would encourage young talent in this field to showcase their research work and experiences through various sessions. Such a summit would be incomplete without the active participation of various national and international societies/ Associations/ Groups/ NGO’s working for the care of the injured worldwide. We solicit active participation of all such societies and collaboration by bringing in their members as delegates and faculty to this Congress.

Kindly, keep in mind the important dates of the congress.

We are sure that the deliberations during the congress will be useful in designing strategies to prevent and control morbidity and mortality due to Injury. We are looking forward to your enthusiastic participation. We will ensure that you have a pleasant experience and great time in Delhi.

Please feel free to contact us, if you or your society is willing to contribute to the meeting. Hope to see you in August 2016.

Congress President
