Advancing paediatric surgery through education and research

Paediatric Advanced Cadaveric Trauma Surgery (PACTS) Course for Surgeons

Fresh Frozen Cadavers

24 Nov

Newcastle Surgical Training Centre

Newcastle, 24th November 2022 - 25th November 2022

This course is a two day hands on cadaveric operative workshop for surgeons, anaesthetists and theatre nurses likely to be involved in the operative management of major trauma in children. We combine team decision making and communication under pressure with
operative techniques.

The operative techniques focus on management of truncal and junctionalzone injuries. The lectures, discussions and case studies explore the principles of damage control surgery in children, working in multi-specialty surgical teams and the human factors of managing under
extreme pressure. Experience is shared from military and humanitarian surgeons as well as recent major incidents in the UK.
It is aimed at consultants and ST8 and above in paediatric surgery, orthopaedics, plastics and neurosurgery or adult surgeons with
an interest in children as well as paediatric anaesthetists and theatre nurses. We encourage entire theatre trauma teams to attend together.
