Boston Medical Center’s Division of Trauma Surgery hosts a monthly video conference with our colleagues at Lahey Clinic Medical Center in Burlington, MA and Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, MA where we present and discuss trauma-related cases.This morning we had a great conference as Michael Murphy, MD, at South Shore Medical Center and Mark Durling, EMT-P, from Hingham Fire joined us to discuss a recent case that presented to BMC. By bringing together all of those who participated in the patients care: from the first responders in the field (Hingham Fire); to the community hospital (South Shore Hospital) where the patient was initially transported; to our trauma center at BMC where the patient was transferred, we were able to not only fully appreciate the complexity in handling major trauma but also the continuum of care necessary to make it successful.
This educational forum is an ongoing way to share clinical experiences with one another where Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits can be earned and patient care across our region can be improved.
For more information, or if you facility is interested in participating in our Trauma Video Conference, please contact Joe Blansfield, Boston Medical Center Trauma Program Manager at 617.414.4088 or email@example.com.
