Thanks to each and every one of you for your support of the Pediatric Trauma Society mission. As I commence my year as the leader of this amazing organization I want all to know that I am always glad to hear your ideas and comments.

We just concluded our highest attended Annual Meeting and it was a HUGE success! We had over 420 registered attendees at the Sheraton Bay Tower in beautiful San Diego. We had a record attendance and we have continued to see an increase in membership of greater than 10% year over year for the past 4 years. Two thousand and eighteen and 2019 saw an increase of 187 members to take our total membership to over 1,150 medical professionals from all specialties. Congratulations to the Lone Star State for having the largest PTS membership contingency in the entire world with over 140 members from that state alone! More

The American College of Surgeons Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP®) provides risk-adjusted benchmarking to trauma hospitals by collecting data from trauma centers, providing feedback about trauma centers’ performance, and identifying institutional characteristics that trauma center staff can implement to improve patient outcomes. The ACS TQIP Best Practice Guidelines (BPG) aim to provide recommendations for managing patient populations or injury types with special considerations to trauma care providers. The TQIP Best Practices Project Team and a panel of guest experts from appropriate specialties, work together over the course of the year to create each guideline. The guidelines are created from evidence-based literature when available and consensus of the group when evidence is lacking. More
