National Trauma Awareness Month 2018

"Injury is no accident: 30 years of making a difference"


The American Trauma Society, in collaboration with the Society of Trauma Nurses, is once again pleased to present National Trauma Awareness Month.  This year, in honor of National Trauma Awareness Month's 30th anniversary, the theme will expand to cover injury prevention efforts as a whole and the concept that injury is no accident.

In celebration of the ATS's 50th anniversary we will be highlighting the important milestones in Injury Prevention efforts over the past 50 years and are make available a range of updated NTAM prevention resources from past year's campaigns (along with some new ones too).


We hope that this campaign and its materials will continue to draw attention to all injury prevention efforts and invoke change by the community. The ATS has posted these resource materials electronically for your use, not only in May, but also in the months thereafter.

We also encourage trauma centers to have a “Trauma Survivors’ Day” to reunite patients and families who have been served by the trauma center. Visit the TSN web site for the materials to plan the celebration. Click on “Get Involved”, and then National Trauma Survivors Day.
We urge you to start planning activities and make this year’s celebration the best one yet!
