The Safe System approach to road safety aims to minimise road deaths and life-changing injuries rather than to prevent all crashes. The effectiveness of post-crash response is therefore a crucial part of the system. This conference will feature practitioners, politicians and researchers involved in specifying and delivering these vital services. It will present innovative working methods and question established practices. It will challenge stakeholders to work more closely to optimise patient outcomes, learn from the events and to support victims’ families.

Conference themes

  • The political and policy framework
  • Understanding and challenging institutional constraints
  • Emergency services – current practice, evidence base and innovation
