The American Trauma Society’s – Trauma Registry and Data Council (TRDC) Presents a Trauma Registrar Educational Webinar on Tuesday, January 26th, 2016 from 1:00-2:00pm EST

"2016 NTDS Dictionary Changes"

The National Trauma Data Standard (NTDS) Dictionary is designed to establish a national standard for the exchange of trauma registry data, and to serve as the operational definitions for the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB). Each year and throughout the year, the American College of Surgeons provides updates and changes to the National Trauma Data Standards.  This webinar will review recent changes made to the NTDB data fields.  The webinar will further assist the Registrar with important knowledge of the abstracting process, and assist in improving the quality of the data sent to the NTDB.    

Upon completion of the "2016 NTDS Dictionary Changes" Webinar, the learner will be able to:
Recognize the new data fields
Recognize the impact of abstracting with the updated definitions
Recognize the updated clarifications to definitions when abstracting
Recognize the significance the additional Information edits have with data abstraction of NTDB fields

Cost: FREE for Members / $25 for Non-Members
