world coalition for trauma care

The goals of the World Coalition for Trauma Care are:​

1. To increase awareness of the importance of trauma as a disease worldwide
2. Trauma Education at all levels worldwide
3. Development of trauma systems worldwide
4. Continuation of the World Trauma Congress

We can only accomplish those goals at a global level if we stay together as a group of people and powerful professional organizations and start implementing change worldwide. Our organizations (and their members) have the opportunity to exert international influence, help less developed nations to improve care by means of better education and knowledge, critical thinking towards systems development, data collection (trauma registries and injury surveillance), and implementation of quality improvement processes.
