The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS COT) and the Society of Trauma Nurses (STN) are pleased to announce their partnership to develop the Optimal Trauma Center Organization & Management Course.

  • This collaborative course will be taught by physicians and nurses with the goal of enhancing trauma center systems of care and improving patient care through implementation of the ACS COT Trauma Center Standards.
  • The nuances of implementation or improving upon trauma center criteria within the structure of your specific facility will be reviewed in an interactive forum.
  • Whether a verified mature center or a hospital preparing for designation, this course is designed to assist participants to create strategies, processes and operations to support trauma systems based upon their own unique environments.
  • The course is designed to assist Trauma Medical Directors, Trauma Program Managers/Coordinators, Administrators, Trauma Registrars, State/Region personnel and other disciplines involved in trauma. A baseline of what is required to be a verified center rather than the ceiling will be represented in the course.
