During thursday and friday the PreHospen conference takes place here at the University of Borås. It is the seventh conference in order, and everyone who work in some way with, or are affected by, prehospital emergency medical care are welcome.

In the Library Lounge you also find journals like Samverkan 112 (Collaboration 112) and Vårdfokus (Focus in health) with the latter including articles about various trauma teams in the latest issue (both journals are in Swedish). Please feel free to ask questions about additional literature on the subject at the information points in the library.
