Regional Practice Management Guidelines Approved!

Through the state’s designation visits, there were several consistent practice inconsistencies identified and SMRTAC, in collaboration with Mayo Clinic Trauma Centers at the October 13th Performance Improvement Seminar held in Welch MN, the participants developed these guidelines.  SMRTAC’s goal with these PMGs is to share guidance in standardization of trauma care in our region.  Please review these PMGs, use as a reference for PMGs in your trauma care, and provide feedback.  SMRTAC will provide education, implementation, and monitoring of these guidelines.  The guidelines are listed in the left hand column under SMRTAC.
