The ACS TQP Best Practices Guidelines aim to provide recommendations for managing patient populations or injury types with special considerations to trauma care providers. The Trauma Quality Programs (TQP) Best Practices Project Team and a panel of guest experts from appropriate specialties, work together over the course of the year to create each guideline. The guidelines are created from evidence-based literature when available and consensus of the group when evidence is lacking.
These guidelines are created by leading health care professionals in each field, and provide a valuable resource for trauma centers everywhere.
