In this course, we will highlight the key evidence and its significance so that participants can develop a comprehensive understanding of managing critical patients, the advances in minimally invasive emergency surgery, and how these techniques are transforming emergency medical care. Participants will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to apply evidence effectively in clinical practice and improve patient care and outcomes.
