Journal Scan

Journal Scan is a new offering from the Education Committee. It is a sampling of recent literature. Each quarter, committee members will review a few journal articles relevant to practice and post the title, authors, abstract, and a brief review as to why this article may be of general interest to the pediatric trauma world. Topics requested by PTS members will guide the article selection process.
