Medical Seminars

From March 2000 to November 2009 Pedtrauma organized 15 Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) seminars for doctors and surgeons, and 3 Basic Life Support (BLS) seminars for nurses. These seminars were held in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University Hospital, Baltimore. The sole purpose of these seminars was to train surgeons, doctors, nurses and Ambulance paramedics on how to help injured children the fastest and best way possible.

Through these seminars 510 Doctors and 90 Nurses were trained by visiting Professors from the Johns Hopkins University Hospital and their Greek counterparts.

In early 2010 our Charity decided,due to the deteriorating economic climate,to collaborate with "APLS Hellas" and instead of organizing seminars ourselves to use our resources to partially fund the doctors' participation fee and to wholly fund the nurses' participation fee in these seminars.
