Welcome to the Pediatric Trauma Society
The PTS is a professional organization for all healthcare providers interested in improving outcomes for injured children through development of optimal care guidelines, education, research and advocacy. PTS is the product of the collaborative vision of many pediatric trauma healthcare providers from around the world. Filling a void, PTS is working toward becoming the resource for both pediatric and adult trauma care providers to improve pediatric trauma care regardless of where injured children are cared for.

On behalf of the Pediatric Trauma Society, the Executive Board wishes to express our deepest sympathy to the families affected by the senseless violence in Parkland, Florida, which saw 17 innocent children and adults slaughtered in the latest example of gun violence in our nation. As a professional organization for all healthcare providers who work with injured children, and with our firm commitment to serve as the voice for the injured child, we are concerned about the increasingly more frequent pain, suffering and death of all, especially innocent children, from the indiscriminate use of firearms.

Get Involved: Share Your Resources!
The Education Committee has recently revised and updated both the Clinical Resources and CME/CEU pages located on the PTS website. The clinical resources and CME/CEU links were submitted by a number of our members and are consistently reviewed by the committee to assure relevancy and accuracy. We are opening up a Call for New Clinical Resources, Guidelines and Polices to add to the existing list.
Submissions can be emailed to Matilda Wright at matilda.wright@uky.edu. In order to include your resources on the PTS webpage, the submission will need to be blinded so that the hospital or program name is not on the documents. Please include the date on each submission for relevancy.
