To err is human - the importance of working together!

On March 14-15, 2024 the 13th Swiss Trauma & Acute Care Surgery (STACS) Days will be held at the Inselspital, Bern University Hospital. 

In Trauma and Acute Care Surgery, time is of the essence and decisions must be made under pressure. This creates the potential for errors that are inherent in the nature of these patients. It is important to learn from each other and to discuss these challenges.

At the 13th STACS Days, national and international experts will present the latest evidence in trauma care, resuscitation and non-trauma emergency surgery.

Moreover, you will have the opportunity to submit scientific abstracts in the field of trauma care, Resuscitation, and Acute Care Surgery. An award of CHF 1000.- will be granted for the best scientific abstract by SwissACS.

We are looking forward to see you at the 13th STACS Days!
