Daybreak Plenary Session II - What Can T.Q.I.P. Do For You?
Moderator – Judy Mikhail, RN, MSN, MBA

Faculty:
Heidi Hotz, RN
Trauma Program Manager, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA

The Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP) provides trauma centers with risk-adjusted benchmarking that allows them to track outcomes and improve care. TQIP is built on the backbone of the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB), and it represents an investment in resources and time for trauma centers. Many trauma centers have asked, “Why should my trauma center invest in this information? Is it worth it?” Heidi Hotz answers these questions from the perspective of both a trauma program manager and a TQIP trainer. This session is open to all who have registered for the full conference.


8:10 AM – 9:35 AM
PLENARY SESSION III: Trauma Resuscitation
Trauma resuscitation represents a keystone of trauma care: The how’s and why’s of what we do, and when we do it are ongoing areas of discussion and research. In this session, three speakers address controversial resuscitation issues, such as field hypotension and other trauma activation criteria, videotaping trauma resuscitations, and permissive hypotension.

PLENARY SESSION IV: Those Nagging Trauma Issues
We all have these nagging trauma problems that continue to plague us, and are detrimental to our patients’ care and to our co-workers. How do we resolve them? This session covers three persistent issues familiar to all of us: Preserving the chain of evidence – how do you do this in the middle of saving a life? Delirium and the trauma patient – is the cause environmental, pharmaceutical, psychosocial, or some aspect of the injury itself? The value of debriefing after a emotionally wrenching event – why is this so important? These answers and more will be presented during this session.

LUNCHEON and DISTINGUISHED LECTURESHIP

Dorrie K. Fontaine, RN, PhD, FAAN
Dean, School of Nursing, University of Virginia Medical Center, Charlottesville, VA

The Society of Trauma Nurses is pleased to announce Dorrie K. Fontaine, RN, PhD, FAAN as the recipient of the 2013 Distinguished Lectureship Award. Dr. Fontaine’s contributions to trauma nursing and to nursing in general are vast and worthy of many commendations. She has her roots in trauma nursing and spent five years as a staff nurse at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Dr. Fontaine has also been a Trauma Contributing Editor to Critical Care Nurse and she is the co-author of the grant that funded the Trauma/ Critical Care master’s program at the University of Maryland School of Nursing, which began in 1982. Dr. Fontaine’s leading research and seminal nursing work on sleep, “Sleep in the Critically Ill Patient,” was conducted in a trauma setting. She has also conducted research on family presence at the end of life, which many of us have implemented at our bedsides.

Dr. Fontaine received her BSN from Villanova University, a master’s degree from the University of Maryland, and her PhD from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. In 2006, she completed a Management and Leadership in Education Program at the Harvard Graduate Institute of Higher Education. Currently, Dr. Fontaine is the dean of the University of Virginia School of Nursing. Her primary focus has been in promoting healthy workplace environments, building more inter-professional collaborations, and increasing diversity in both the faculty and student populations.
