Trauma is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality amongst the economically active and young population. Disability following trauma further adds to the socioeconomic burden of the society.
Dear friends, After a 4 year hiatus, Singapore Trauma and Acute Care Conference (STACC) is back! STACC 2023 will be held from 5th – 6th October 2023 at the Suntec City Convention Centre, Singapore. The theme for this year is “Diverse Challenges, Sharing Solutions”. All of us face challenges in providing trauma and acute care in the diverse environments and situations across the world. The lessons learnt and experiences gained are impactful and invaluable to everyone. STACC 2023 aims to be the platform for sharing our solutions, insights and lessons in the diversity of medical practice, culture and challenges that we face. You will have the opportunity to learn, share opinions and have a dynamic exchange of ideas, in person, with our international and regional experts on trauma, acute care and critical care. Current and challenging topics in Pre-hospital and Emergency Medicine, Trauma care, Acute Care Surgery, Critical Care, Orthopaedic Trauma, Neurosurgical Trauma and Paediatric Trauma will be featured during our 2 day conference. Through active engagement with our faculty, networking with each other and discovering new innovations from our medical partners, STACC 2023 promises an enriching and exciting program for everyone. On behalf of the STACC Organising Committee, I look forward to welcoming you and sharing fellowship with everyone at STACC 2023. Thank you and see you soon.
