Trauma Advisory Committee

The Trauma Advisory Committee (TAC) strives for quality patient outcomes through accountable and objective performance improvement activities. This is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary, evidence-based process that promotes the monitoring and evaluation of the trauma system. Performance improvement is an essential component of any trauma system and establishes a mechanism to determine whether medical care rendered to patients of the trauma system meets and or exceeds local and national standards.
