Virtual 10th Swiss Trauma & Acute Care Surgery Days 2021


Ladies and Gentlemen

From April 1 to May 16, 2021, the 10th SWISS TRAUMA & ACUTE CARE SURGERY (STACS) DAYS are held fully virtual with pre-recorded presentations. Once registered, you will have full access to all online presentations and CME credits. Additionally, on May 4, 2021, from 16:00 h to 18:00 h, there will be a sum-up webinar for all participants and presenters.

This interdisciplinary trauma, resuscitation and emergency surgery meeting will be an update of the newest evidence in trauma and resuscitation and non-trauma emergency surgery. Taking care of trauma or non-trauma acute surgical patients requires designated professionals from multiple disciplines. Nevertheless, a comprehensive team approach is of paramount importance. The post-acute work-up of these patients is highly valuable and allows the team to review, discuss, and question the performance in a serene setting. Moreover, it is a great opportunity to learn from each other - and once a year at the STACS Days!

Best regards,

Your STACS Organizing Committee
