Welcome to the Pediatric Trauma SocietyThe 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.

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 email@example.com. 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.
