Trauma System Plan Task Force

The Chair and Executive Committee of the state EMS Advisory Board requested the appointment of a multi-disciplinary task force representing the trauma and EMS system in Virginia to begin the process of addressing the recommendations contained in the Trauma System Consultation Report prepared by the American College of Surgeons. This interdisciplinary working group prepared the report based on a consultation visit that took place September 1 – 4, 2015, in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The charge of the task force is to develop a timeline for completing a draft Virginia Trauma System Plan. In order to accomplish this goal, the task force has identified subject matter experts to serve on work groups that will examine key aspects and components of the trauma system in Virginia. Prior to adoption by the state EMS Advisory Board and the state Board of Health, the Virginia Trauma System Plan will be thoroughly vetted using an open, transparent and inclusive process.
