National Trauma Care System: Integrating Military and Civilian Trauma Systems to Achieve Zero Preventable Deaths After Injury

There are many avenues to reducing the deaths and serious injuries from crashes. One of them is to improve the care of the victims in the aftermath of crashes. That is what this strategy aims to do.

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:

A new Report on Trauma Care is out that calls for a Vision Zero for Preventable Deaths. 

A National Trauma Care System:

Integrating Military and Civilian Trauma Systems to Achieve Zero Preventable Deaths After Injury

See Infographic at  http://www.nationalacademies.org/hmd/Reports/2016/A-National-Trauma-Care-System-Integrating-Military-and-Civilian-Trauma-Systems.aspx

There is a lot to like in this report.  See the Recommendations at http://www.nationalacademies.org/hmd/~/media/Files/Report%20Files/2016/Trauma-Care/Trauma-Care-Recs.pdf

I like that the Report calls on the White House, the DOD, and the DHHS to get involved

See some of my previous thoughts on this that NHTSA ignored at the cost of countless preventable tragedies at: http://www.careforcrashvictims.com/assets/VisionZero2014Article.pdf
