PROGRAMME SCHEDULE

11 October, 1200 - 1300h | Trauma in Singapore: Why It Matters

The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in changes in our lives, a new normal that we all have to cope with. Trauma will continue to affect our lives even in the new normal.

By understanding the magnitude of the resources and impact that trauma has on Singaporeans, we can now make attempts to decrease the incidence of traumatic events and even prevent them from happening.

13 October, 1200 - 1300h | Managing Common Recreational Injuries

Increasing sports participation necessitates that we gain an appreciation of the types of injuries, especially those of potentially serious consequence, e.g. head, spine, chest, and abdomen.

I will cover common recreational injuries and the ways to prevent, treat and manage them in an expedient manner.

15 October, 1200 - 1300h | Psychological Impact of Trauma: The Invisible Injury

Trauma affects everyone differently. Most responses are normal reactions to an abnormal event and are short-lived. Some people experience the psychological impact for a longer period of time or have delayed reaction. The psychological injury, which is invisible, can be as debilitating as the physical injuries, if not more.

Find out what are the steps you can take to aid in the psychological recovery after a traumatic event, and what are the red flags to watch out for to seek professional help.
