ACS Trauma Assessment Documents 2010

American College of Surgeons (ACS) is going to do an assessment of the Texas Trauma Systems in May. The assessment will take place at the Omni Southpark in Austin in rooms adjacent to the GETAC meetings. ACS has asked the Office of EMS/Trauma Systems Coordination (OEMS/TS) to gather supporting documentation in the form of a Prereview Questionnaire (PRQ) to educate ACS surveyors about the Texas Trauma System. The PRQ was sent to ACS in early April.
