Welcome message

It is with great pleasure, that I welcome you to our Johor Trauma Conference 2017, organised by our Johor Bahru Surgical Society (JoBSS) in collaboration with Trauma Surgery Unit, HSAJB and Royal Medical Corp, Ministry of Defence, Malaysia. This conference will be held from the 11th to 12th August 2017 at Berjaya Waterfront Hotel, Johor Bahru, Johor.

Trauma care is a convoluted discipline that demands an extensive network of personnel working together in a dynamic system that is able to produce an amicable outcome for trauma patients. To achieve this goal, we must learn to assimilate the ideology of trauma care between various institutions. Thus, making this conference a terrific platform for us to share our plight in managing the unfortunate victim. Hence the theme for our conference this year : “Integration of trauma systems, towards the Blue Ocean Strategy”.

Sadly, for the past decade, we have seen the surge of terror attacks, that are slowly but inevitably creeping into our shores. I believe it is fundamental for us to be ready to tackle any enventuality that may one day strike us hard and render us anarchic without any alarm. In this conference, we have renowned speakers who will share with us their experiences that will help us to prepare ourselves in facing this ominous calamity. This year, we cordially invite our colleagues in uniform to share their first hand experience working in an austere environment while unyieldingly keeping to the code to save lives. We also have the honour of inviting an esteemed surgeon who has gone above and beyond his call of duty to help the underprivileged refugees. Do look forward to hearing the inspiring narrative of his live experiences being on ground zero, I assure you, it will leave you stunned and stupefied.

As per the previous year, our scientific program will consist of plenaries and concurrent symposiums. Here, our colleagues from different specialities who co-manage trauma cases will pour out their knowledge and conform with all your burning doubts. We will have exuberant didactic sessions with world renowned experts combined with local experts on selected topics that are just tailored for the greater audience.

As for the venue, Berjaya Waterfront Hotel will give you a panoramic view of the Straits of Tebrau and our neighbouring country, Singapore. The hotel and its integrated duty-free zone is home to an array of shopping, dining and entertainment options.

I hereby give you the 3rd Johor Trauma Conference, organised by a most dedicated team, in hopes to continue the effort in producing good quality and up to date trauma care knowledge to the interested denizens.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the organizing committee, the industrial partners and gracious participants for making this conference a reality.

We eagerly look forward to meeting you at the conference.
