The Annual BC Provincial Forum for Trauma Services convenes leaders from across British Columbia dedicated to the care and management of patients with severe traumatic injuries. Attendees represent various sectors such as Injury Prevention, BC Ambulance Service, and clinical professionals from major trauma centers.

Scheduled for June 4th in Vancouver, this gathering aims to prioritize collaborative efforts in enhancing trauma patient care throughout BC.

We are actively seeking the perspective of an Indigenous person to enrich discussions and contribute to identifying key initiatives. Their presence at the table during deliberations on topics such as Injury Prevention, BC Ambulance Services, Emergency Care, and Post-Discharge Community Support is invaluable.
