Last week Australia-India Trauma Systems Collaboration (AITSC) hosted its Improving Trauma Care Roundtable at the AMREP theatre. The interactive forum brought together practitioners, researchers and policy makers from Australia and India, and was a wonderful opportunity to engage and learn about the challenges of improving trauma care and how the AITSC is addressing these challenges. Improved trauma systems are a part of the solution to the global injury epidemic and have been very successful in Victoria. The roundtable discussed whether they could work to reduce the 5 million trauma deaths elsewhere in the world. Many thanks to those who attended the session, and a special thanks to our Indian delegates and speakers.
