Detroit Trauma Symposium is designed to address the continuum of care of the injured person. Presenters and attendees will represent physicians, nurses and allied health providers who work together to maintain the interdisciplinary cooperation which is one hallmark of a coordinated system of trauma care. Attendees will gain knowledge about their own specialties as well as an increased knowledge and appreciation of the work of others on the trauma team.
