American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Session Code: SL01
Title: Firearm Injury Prevention
Date and Time of Session: Monday, October 17: 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Description: Firearm injury continues to plaque our country and potential solutions remain a high profile topic in the national debate. While gun control is clearly a polarizing issue, other approaches to this public health problem may allow us (and perhaps other academic medical organizations) to lead an effort to find a common ground so that progress can be made in addressing firearm violence. This session will be moderated by COT leadership and discuss, in part, results from a survey of the national COT to determine their views on a wide variety of firearm injury - related topics. Ample time for open discussion from the audience will be a vital part of this important session.
