I attended the bStreetsmart event today along with my school, MET Oatlands.

I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome job you did. The day was excellent. Crash scene was very realistic and survivors stories very stirring.

Thanks for organising this great event! It was a job very well done.

 



WOW! WOW! WOW!

 

Thank you for having us attend the BSTREET SMART program today. I can't put into words how powerful all the demonstrations and speakers were.

This is so well put together and I am so pleased 100 of our students were able to attend.

 

Thank you so much!

 

Excellent! and so important.

 



Thank you for organising such a wonderful and powerful event.



About Us

Westmead Trauma Centre is one of  Australia's largest and busiest Trauma Centres with over 3100 admissions per year. It has a well-established Trauma Registry with over 59,500 patients and a well organised system of trauma care.



Westmead Hospital has for over 25 years clearly proven its commitment to improving and advancing trauma care, both for the people of Western Sydney and farther afield by providing ongoing education with lectures, tutorials, and support as a center for advice, referrals and transfers.



It provides all facets of trauma care encompassing the prehospital phase and triage, acute hospital care and  specialised  rehabilitation. It is now becoming a leader in Public and Community Education, promoting awareness of Trauma Management and Injury Prevention.



In February 2005, the Trauma Service at Westmead Hospital conducted its inaugural Trauma Week that was aimed at increasing trauma awareness in the general community and focused on public education and injury prevention. The key target groups identified were children, the elderly and high school students (Years 11 and 12).



The last 2 days focused on high school students specifically targeting current issues in road trauma for young drivers including speeding, alcohol, drug taking, seatbelt and helmet wearing and organ donation.



Due to the success of Trauma Week 2005, the Trauma Service has since run the Youth and Road Trauma Forum now called bstreetsmart on a yearly basis since 2006. Over 161,000 students from 405 Government and Non Government High Schools in NSW and the ACT have attended in previous years.



Funding has come from a variety of organisations. NRMA Motoring & Service partnered the Youth and Road Trauma Forum from 2006 – 2009. The Balnaves Foundation  supported the Forum both financially and in kind from 2010 - 2013.  NSW Government funding has also been secured until 2019.
