Save the Date!

The 2018 TQIP Annual Scientific Meeting and Training brings together trauma medical directors, program managers, coordinators, and registrars from participating and prospective Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP) hospitals and provides an ideal venue for networking and for the sharing of best practices. 

The meeting will include role-specific breakout sessions to ensure all staff members receive the knowledge most useful and pertinent to their role on their facility’s TQIP team. In addition, Level III, Pediatric, and collaborative specific sessions will be offered, as well as sessions geared towards staff at new TQIP centers, new staff at existing centers, and those who need a TQIP refresher.

We look forward to seeing you in Anaheim!
