The 22nd World Congress of the ITMA took place in Chongqing, P.R. China on 13-16 May 2011. Here you can find the article about the congress on the Daping hospital website which also contains some pictures of the congress participants.
The 22nd ITMA world congress in Chongqing was a great success. All arrangements were superb and the scientific quality of the presentations and research behind them were better than ever before. At the congress professor Zheng Guo Wang also presented a new comprehensive text book in "Modern Traffic Medicine". This was a thick volume covering all different aspects of what we consider to be Traffic Medicine. Most chapters are in Chinese but with a short summary in English. For all Chinese doctors, psychologists, engineers, decision makers and traffic police officers this must mean a great leap forward for Chinese Traffic Medicine.
