Celebrate Trauma Registry Professionals’ Day!

Dear MTC Members,

Please join us in celebrating TRAUMA REGISTRY PROFESSIONALS’ DAY on this Wednesday, May 6th. This day of recognition is the work of the American Trauma Society (ATS), and this is its second year.

Here at the MTC, we start by saying “Thank You!” to all Trauma Registrars, whose work in trauma programs  across the state of Michigan is vital to providing optimal care to injured patients and makes trauma performance improvement possible! We hope that all Trauma Registrars know that they are deeply valued. In this time of pandemic, most of our registrar colleagues have been working remotely, but that will not stop us from sending a virtual bouquet in gratitude:


For more ideas, the ATS web site (https://www.amtrauma.org/page/TraumaRegistryProfessionalsDay2020) has some great suggestions for ways that we can show our appreciation and support for all our trauma registry staff. For starters, the ATS has made a free Trauma Registry Webinar available on May 6th at 1:00 PM ET – “Joint Trauma System: How Registry Data Changes Clinical Practice.” How do clinical observations lead to change? See this link to register: https://www.amtrauma.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1365759&group=

The webinar is hosted by Col Stacy Shackelford, MD, FACS, USAF, MC, and Chief, Joint Trauma System, Combat Support Agency, Defense Health Agency.  

Again, on behalf of the MTC Leadership Council, we send thanks to all Trauma Registrars.
