National Trauma Awareness Month Information and Resources

May is National Trauma Awareness Month. In 1988, Ronald Reagan recognized the need for trauma awareness and established May as the month for us to dedicate our time and resources to increasing education and prevention activities.

The Society of Trauma Nurses has compiled resources for you to use during National Trauma Awareness Month. In an effort to address the continuum of care, we will focus on different trauma topics each week of the month. Members will receive weekly emails announcing the topics and availability of resources to share with your departments and communities.

We encourage you to take advantage of this time to ensure optimal trauma care to all people!

2010 National Trauma Awareness Resources

2011 National Trauma Awareness

The Society of Trauma Nurses teamed up with the American Trauma Society (ATS) and the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) to develop resources for trauma care providers for National Trauma Awareness Month. Falls were consistently identified as the number one mechanism of injury; therefore, the group selected fall prevention as the 2011 National Trauma Awareness campaign theme. Please see below for a list of materials we encourage you to use at your institution and in your community not just during Trauma Awareness Month but throughout the entire year.

STN members will receive weekly updates with information and resources on additional topics throughout May 2011.
