Message Of Chairman

Emergency Medicine (EM) is an escalating medical specialty that is rapidly developing worldwide. Focused on the recognition, steadiness and treatment of life and limb-threatening conditions, EM is established as a fully “advanced” specialty in only a handful of nations, with quite a few countries still in the mid stages of development, including Pakistan (which has developed at a purposefully quick pace) and has accomplished many of the landmarks of EM development in just over nearly a period of 10 years.

Keeping the same momentum in swing, I would like to welcome you to the 2 nd Emergency Medicine Symposium of Dr. Ziauddin Hospital and University 2019.

We are aware that distinctive care is typically delivered in an Emergency Room setting; however the purview of emergency medicine extends beyond the emergency department when looking at attentive dimensions of health care. Hence the symposium will extend and elaborate pertinent knowledge and skills in - Quality Health care treatment, management, promotion and prevention of diseases and critical situation of injuries / accidents, leadership and teamwork. Generation of emergency medicine knowledge through research and knowledge translation will also be a key factor of interest.

I hope the updates provided through this symposium and the others to come along in future will continue to be key contributors to emerging emergency medicine in our country.

Dr. Asim Hussain
Dr. Ziauddin Group of Hospitals
