Smith and Nephew are the sole sponsors of the Symposium. SORT-IT and the Edinburgh Orthopaedic Trauma unit would like to acknowledge their generous financial support.
The Symposium and Instructional Course are organised by the Scottish Orthopaedic Research Trust into Trauma, which was established in 1993 to promote research into orthopaedic trauma. The Trust has promoted research into different aspects of fracture management, fracture epidemiology and the evaluation of soft tissue injury in trauma. All proceeds from the Edinburgh International Trauma Symposium and the Course will go to further the work of SORT-IT.
