Trauma Program Manager
This comprehensive program is designed to provide a solid foundation and standardized approach for the new trauma program manager in the following core areas:
- communication with surgeons, administration and trauma program staff
- expertise in the Resources for Optimal Care of the Injured Patient, 2014 (aka “Orange Book”), trauma verification preparation, and national, state and local trauma center resources.
This program covers in depth each chapter of the Resources for Optimal Care of the Injured Patient, 2014 including Verification Change document and Clarification document.
In addition to in-depth review of each chapter, additional example resources are provided including but not limited to: clinical guidelines, resumes, lists of needed resources and survey preparation materials. At the end of this program, the TPM will have a completed Trauma Prep Spreadsheet with each criteria deficiency and a goal for completion date. This spreadsheet will be used to communicate needs and develop a gap analysis with the Trauma Medical Director (TMD) and hospital administration.
