Presenters: Amy Eberle, BSN, RN, TCRN

Sheryl Sahr, MD


This is an essential course for regional trauma centers whom support rural programs or those who work within rural trauma centers, where trauma volumes are low, distances long, and resources can be scarce. Rural regions house only 25% of the U.S. population, but have 60% of the trauma deaths. This course has been designed to help rural facilities achieve optimal outcomes through improved performance improvement.
