Welcome to SMRTAC!  We encourage collaboration between all caring for the members of our community affected by trauma, from the pre-injury to rehabilitation phase.  While prevention is best, we recognize that morbidity and mortality are both decreased when trauma programs are implemented efficiently and executed well.  This regional trauma advisory committee includes members responsible for pre-hospital to critical access care and finally definitive care.  Since the Minnesota Commissioner of Health approval in 2009, we have grown and developed several practice management guidelines, educational opportunities, and initiated the first “train the trainers” for the Stop the Bleed program in Minnesota.  Until we truly reach “Toward Zero Deaths” in Minnesota, we will continue to advocate for excellent care of the trauma patient.  Please join us at our next meeting or contact us for more information!
