This was the first year that the London Trauma Conference included a breakaway session dedicated to Trauma Nursing. Convening the day was Dr. Heather Jarman, an Emergency Department Nurse Consultant and Clinical Director for Major Trauma at St. Georges MTC in London, who found time between sessions to discuss Trauma Nursing and the research she has completed for her PhD.

This was a chance to gain a great insight into the nursing side of trauma, and how nurses view their role in the trauma team. As such I hope that Doctors and Nurses alike will find this useful and interesting, and that it might encourage or inspire some of you to get involved in research!

As always, remember to follow the conference on twitter @LDNtrauma and myself @dmccreary85 & @FOAMedNW for questions or comments.
