Councils

Trauma Managers

Overview

The Trauma Managers Council formulates recommendations on policies and positions specific to EMS trauma systems. These recommendations are considered by the NASEMSO Executive Committee, and positions are taken by the association as a whole (not by individual councils), to represent consensus of all state and territorial EMS offices, nationwide.

Vision

The vision of the Trauma Managers Council is to be a national leader in developing and maintaining a fully-integrated and functioning trauma system that assures universal access to high-quality trauma care in all states and territories.

Mission

The mission of the Trauma Managers Council is to promote the advancement of statewide trauma systems through the development of state trauma system leadership and infrastructure.

Scope

The Trauma Managers Council provides a forum for communication, interaction and networking between peers, other national organizations and federal agencies with similar missions.  This forum allows for the sharing of best practices; developing and encouraging mentoring programs; the joint resolution of obstacles and challenges; and the nationwide promotion of evidence-based decision making.
