About the Ohio Committee on Trauma

The Ohio Committee on Trauma is a group that is comprised of surgeons and health care professionals dedicated to improving care of the injured patient. Care of the injured or “trauma” patient is a continuum and begins the moment an injury occurs and continues through rehabilitation and re-entry into society. The National A.C.S.C.O.T. “strives to be a resource for our professionals and other entities – professional, public, and government – in topics concerning trauma prevention and care.” (ACSCOT Blue Book) The Ohio C.O.T. is dedicated to improving trauma care along the continuum through a focus on:

  • Public and professional education
  • Advocacy
  • Injury prevention
  • Trauma system development
  • Standards of care
  • Quality of patient care
  • Financial assessment of care
