The Blue Book: Military-Civilian Partnerships for Trauma Training, Sustainment, and Readiness

To provide guidance on creating military-civilian partnerships, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has released The Blue Book: Military-Civilian Partnerships for Trauma Training, Sustainment, and Readiness. As hospitals prepare for a surge of COVID-19 patients, medical supplies and health care workers may be in short supply. Creative solutions are necessary to increase the capacity of the civilian hospital infrastructure. The Blue Book contains information for developing and sustaining military-civilian partnerships such as obtaining institutional commitment, governance and administration, human resources, physical resources, education, and evaluation.
