Regional Trauma Advisory Councils

 

A Regional Trauma Advisory Council (RTAC) is an organized group of health care entities and others who are interested in organizing and improving trauma care in a specified region of Wisconsin. The purpose of an RTAC is to develop, implement, and monitor a regional trauma system plan to facilitate trauma system networking within a region.

RTAC membership may include, but is not limited to, hospitals, physicians, nurses, Emergency Medical Service (EMS) providers and their medical directors, rehabilitation facilities, communications centers, injury prevention organizations, and community groups. RTACs collaborate with the State Trauma Advisory Council (STAC), the Department of Health Services Injury Prevention Program, and all other entities involved with, and affected by, injury.
