***NANSIG’s inaugural journal club with Professor Ian Roberts: Tranexamic acid use in traumatic brain injury, the CRASH-3 trial***

Time: April 2nd 2020, 8pm

For NANSIG’s inaugural virtual journal club we’re delighted to be hosting Professor Roberts, the lead investigator for the CRASH-3 trial.

The CRASH-3 trial was a randomized, placebo-controlled study which demonstrated that tranexamic acid given to traumatic brain injury patients within 3 hours can reduce head injury related death. This trial has had a significant impact on clinical practice and we are looking forward to hearing more about this work from Professor Roberts.

The format will consist of a ~25 min presentation delivered by Professor Roberts followed by a 15 min Q&E session. The full paper can be found here: https://www.thelancet.com/…/PIIS0140-6736(19)32233…/fulltext

We will be using Zoom to host this online journal club. More information to come. Theres a maximum number of people for the meeting so keep a look out for more information!
