The PTS is a developing professional organization for all providers that are interested in improving outcomes for injured children through development of optimal care guidelines, education, research and advocacy.
PTS is the product of the collaborative vision of many pediatric trauma healthcare providers from around the world. Filling a void, PTS is working toward becoming the resource for both pediatric and adult trauma care providers to improve pediatric trauma care regardless of where injured children are cared for.
