About Us


Who we are

ISHANT was founded with the aim of bringing together trauma enthusiasts across the globe who share an interest in head and neck trauma. We all work within our respective practices, yet very few of us get the opportunity to share our experiences and learn from those in other specialties. The aims of the Society is therefore to help us all educate each other.

To advance education, research and the quality of clinical practice in all matters related to this anatomical site. (Surgeons, Nurses, Theatre staff, ICU / anaesthetics, Emergency department, Rehabilitation and Students).

To encourage and assist postgraduate education, study and research.

To provide an opportunity for members to, communicate and share their expertise and experience in head and neck trauma management.

To provide information to the public in order that a better understanding of head and neck management can be achieved.

To help members have access to information about meetings, audit and training. It also provides useful links.

Some areas of the website are for members only and these are accessed with a username & password.
