|8:15 a.m.||What Adult Centers Need from Pediatric Centers||
Michael F. Rotondo, MD
Adult and pediatric Trauma Centers are reliant on each other for quality clinical care, expertise and education. Communication between all Centers is vital. Dr. Rotondo will address the topic through the perspective of the adult Trauma Center.
|9 a.m.||Role of Substance Use and Abuse in Treating Pain in Teens After Trauma||
Renee C.B. Manworren, PhD, APRN
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prenvention, enough opioid pain relievers were sold in 2010 to medicate every adult in the United States with the equivalent of a typical dose of 5 mg of hydrocodone every 4 hours for 1 month. Substance use and abuse has increasingly become a causative factor in pediatric trauma, but opioids remain a necessary treatment for acute pain after trauma. This session will present research findings and provide guidelines for risk stratification and responsible prescribing of opioid pain relievers, including screening and monitoring strategies.
|9:45 a.m.||Healthcare Disparities and Non-accidental Trauma: Understanding Them and Trying to Fix Them||
Richard A. Falcone Jr., MD, MPH
Health care disparities exist in all of medicine. Understanding potential biases and working to minimize their impact on care is crucial. Disparities in non-accidental trauma screening and a method to address this will be described as an example.

David M. Notrica, MD
Non-operative management of blunt pediatric trauma has an established role for liver and splenic injury. Increased use of non-operative management of blunt pancreatic trauma has improved our understanding of expected results. Simultaneously, advances have developed in surgical and interventional techniques.
|11:25 a.m.||Trauma Care Begins with ABCDE, but Don’t Forget the Ws: Who, What, Where and When to Transfer||
Diana G. Fendya, MSN (R), RN
Recognizing WHO needs additional injury care, knowing WHAT care is available WHERE, and deciding WHEN to transfer are critical components of the trauma systems – especially for children. However, the Ws are often neglected. In this presentation, Diana will address national efforts to ensure the Ws are part of every state trauma system and actions every caregiver considers.
|11:50 a.m.||Improving Limb Salvage Outcomes in the Sub-acute Period: Applying Lessons Learned from the Modern Battlefield||
Anand Kumar, MD
Optimizing reconstruction after devastating limb threatening injuries remains a challenging clinical problem. Recent experience from the modern battlefield has improved limb salvage outcomes and better defined optimal timing, sequencing and flap selection.
