Acute Care Surgery (ACS) covers two essential components – trauma and non-trauma emergency surgery. In ACS, the close interdisciplinary collaboration of emergency surgeons, critical care specialist, anaesthesiologists, and ED physicians is of paramount importance. In an effort to strengthen the care of patients with acute surgical disease in Switzerland, a new Society called SwissACS has been established in 2017.
Among the founding members there are surgeons, anesthesiologists, emergency physicians and intensivists. All of you that are interested in the care of acutely injured or surgically ill patients are very welcome to actively participate in SwissACS. If you are considering to become a member of this new interdisciplinary working group or in case you need more information, simply contact us here.
