The American College of Surgeon has recently disclosed changes that are coming in the “new” Resources for Optimal Care of the Injured Patient. Some of the changes are specific to the trauma registrar, both in new staffing and education requirements. Dr. William Marx, DO, FACS, who is the current chair of the Verification Review Committee, lists these changes as concrete requirements for trauma program staffing and education.
The proposed changes are:
Trauma registrar staffing requirement. The new standards also require trauma programs to have 0.5 FTE trauma registrars for every 200 to 300 patients in the trauma registry. (Under the Orange Book, the requirement was one FTE registrar for each 500 to 750 patients.)
Trauma registrar education requirement. The new standards require staff with a trauma registry role to participate in several educational courses:
Any registrars who have not fulfilled these requirements must do so within 18 months of their hire date or within 18 months of the effective date of the new standards, whichever is more recent.
