Around the world, trauma caregivers provide complex care with varying resources, in environments that vary from the most prepared to the most austere. Our Michigan trauma system represents an effort to prepare all agencies and facilities, including large metropolitan trauma centers and rural critical access hospitals, to provide optimal trauma care by working together within a system. Educational programs like this one allow us to bring together regional experts to share what they know and prepare all of us to meet that challenge.
