Trauma News

Trauma Centers Survey Results in JACS

New survey results show US trauma centers routinely perform screenings and interventions for patients with alcohol and substance abuse, but there is opportunity to enhance screening and support for PTSD and violence prevention.

Maintaining Access

The ACS COT has developed a document to advise trauma medical directors and trauma program managers on factors to consider as the public health and healthcare sectors prepare for an anticipated surge of critically ill patients related to COVID-19 infection.

ATLS Educational Materials

During the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that everyone is in need of additional resources and looking for alternate ways to address their individual needs. We have made select ATLS educational materials available free of charge.

Reporting COVID-19

COVID-19 has the potential to affect trauma patients, so the National Trauma Data Standard (NTDS) has established an approach to reporting COVID-19. Watch a short presentation about why and how COVID-19 should be reported for trauma patients.
