The mission of the Trauma Committee is to improve child health by promoting injury prevention, developing and implementing practice guidelines for the care of the injured child and performing research that will lead to reduced morbidity and mortality after injury.

Trauma Committee Literature Reviews

This bi-annual review provides trauma related content pertinent to pediatric surgeons. The selections are compiled by members of the Trauma Committee, but as a group, they are not endorsing the results of these studies as definitive practice. Continuing medical education maintenance of certification self-assessment credit for the literature reviews is available through APSA's ExPERT CME Program.
