Speed matters! This is a common road safety message by-line but why is it? Why does just a little bit over matter? The reason is the human body is not designed to weather the energy of a vehicle crash. This webinar will explore how a crash effects a human’s body and how small differences in speed and types of crash effect it. Leading trauma surgeons Dr Kate Martin and Dr Scott Ferris will explain what they see, why it occurs and what it means in the long term for recovery. A couple of kilometres over the speed limit can be the big difference between major and minor injuries hear from the experts.
Please note – presenters will be sensitive to crash victims and people’s emotions and no graphic trauma will be displayed.
Timing – this session will commence at 2:00 PM AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time). Please check for time zone differences that will apply. It is recommended that you connect to the webinar 15 minutes prior to allow sufficient time for potential connection delays.
