Trauma Awareness Month
The American Trauma Society, in collaboration with the Society of Trauma Nurses, is once again pleased to present National Trauma Awareness Month. This May, National Trauma Awareness Month celebrates its 25th anniversary with the campaign slogan, “If You’re Distracted, We’re Impacted” will focus on Distraction. The issue of distracted driving and other activities where individuals are distracted is a critical issue for public safety and demands action immediately.
The Society of Trauma Nurses extends their condolences to the runners and families affected by the events at the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15. The organization is thankful and proud to be part of the first responders, trauma nurses and physicians who provided care and support for those injured in the blasts. Members, colleagues and partners of STN are in our thoughts and we are committed treating injured patients.
