ATS Trauma Registry Course - Syracuse, NY

Since 1987 the American Trauma Society has been the leader in Trauma Registry education around the country. Beginning with a primer for professionals new to the area of trauma data collection, the ATS' Trauma Registry Course (TRC) has expanded to provide a deeper look into the issues that affect a trauma registrar. The TRC provides a more standardized understanding of the specialty and approach to the task of maintaining a trauma register for the seasoned registrar. Lectures are designed to build upon experience, program maturity, and institutional needs. In this manner the TRC is designed and appropriate for trauma registrars / data managers of all levels of experience. The TRC provides the student with national standard definitions, and methodologies essential to a comprehensive trauma registry. The TRC has been recognized by the American College of Surgeons in the Resources for Optimal Care of the Injured Patient since 1999 as an avenue for comprehensive trauma registry training.

Online registration is available until: 4/15/2016.
