Southeast Regional Trauma Advisory Council (SERTAC)
                                     

What is a Regional Trauma Advisory Council (RTAC)?

A Regional Trauma Advisory Council is an organized group of healthcare entities and other concerned individuals who have an interest in organizing and improving trauma care within a specified region. It serves as the unifying foundation to bring together all local, county, regional, state, federal and other agencies, for the planning, education, training and prevention efforts needed to assure the exemplary care needed pre, acute and post injury. The primary purpose of an RTAC is to design, implement and evaluate a trauma system within a region that is data-based, confidential and sensitive to the needs and limitations of each regional area.
