Registration is now open for the 2019 American College of Surgeons (ACS) Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP®) Annual Scientific Meeting and Training, November 16–18 at the Hilton Anatole, Dallas, TX. Trauma medical directors, program managers, coordinators, and registrars from participating and prospective TQIP hospitals will convene in an ideal venue for networking and sharing of best practices.
New this year, the program will include sessions on Error Management and High-Functioning Teams, as well as the latest Best Practice Guidelines on Trauma Center Recognition of Family Violence, which covers the topics of child abuse, elder abuse, and intimate partner violence.
The Keynote and Trauma Survivor address will be presented by Todd Maxson, MD, FACS, chief, trauma program at Arkansas Children’s Hospital, Little Rock. Dr. Maxson will share his unique experience witnessing the functioning of the Arkansas Trauma System from both sides—as both a surgeon and, later, a patient. In addition, the feature session will present a live trauma simulation on stage, followed by a debriefing with an expert panel. During the debriefing, facilitators will discuss the value of simulation in a trauma program and how it can improve health care customer relationship management. The meeting will include breakout sessions for registry staff, trauma medical directors, and trauma program managers to ensure everyone receives the information most useful and pertinent to their role on the TQIP team.
