Target: Professor David Watters, President and Chair of Council and Executive
Goal: End the use of live animals in trauma training.
Live animals are tortured to train health professionals on how to deal with traumatic injuries. Animals used in trauma training commonly have holes cut in their chest, limbs, abdomens and throat. However, thanks to modern science and technology, there is an alternative but, sadly, trauma training on animals is still a regular occurrence. We must speak up now to stop this brutal practice.
The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons still uses live animals in their Early Management of Severe Trauma course. This sad method of training is something of the past because a new, safe alternative is now available. TraumaMan has been invented. TraumaMan is a human simulator with realistic layers of skin, internal organs, and bones. TraumaMan also stimulates breathing and bleeding. It has been approved as a full replacement for live animals. Not only is TraumaMan more ethically sound, but it is also more cost effective and reusable. There are many benefits to using this new technology including a more accurate assessment of injuries on an actual human rather than varies animals.
This course is conducted throughout Australia and New Zealand. Switching to TraumaMan could save thousands of animals from unnecessary torture, mutilation, and death. Sign this petition and demand the President of the Australasian College of Surgeons to start using this groundbreaking technology rather than forcing harm to any more animals.
Dear Professor Watters,
The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons teaches courses throughout Australia and New Zealand. In some of these courses, live animals are used for trauma training. As of now, live animals are not a necessary way of teaching trauma training. Thanks to modern technology, TraumaMan has been invented. TraumaMan stimulates breathing and bleeding and also has realistic layers of skin, internal organs, and bones. TraumaMan is not only more ethically sound but it is also more cost effective and reusable.
Many programs in countries all over the world have made this switch, including the United States, Canada, China, Greece, and the United Arab Emirates. Switching over to TraumaMan can save thousands of animals from unnecessary torture, mutilation, and death. I am urging you to please invest in TraumaMan to protect innocent animals from such a disturbing and brutal practice.
