Statewide Trauma and Health Systems Training
Trauma is the number-one cause of death between the age of 1 and 46 years of age. The total economic costs associated with trauma are greater than $580 billion dollars annually, making trauma America’s most costly disease. In addition, stroke is the leading cause of serious long-term disability and the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Patients who are having a stroke need to be rapidly evaluated at a hospital, just like patients who are having a heart attack. This training is designed to provide information related to Alabama Statewide Trauma and Health Systems which is saving lives and reducing the burden of trauma and stroke care. The system improves the chances of survival, regardless of proximity to urban trauma and stroke centers. The system is voluntary and all hospitals are invited to participate.
