|Central Region Trauma Advisory Committee (CENTRAC)
The Central Region Trauma Advisory Committee (CENTRAC) was formed to guide trauma care to critically injured patients in Central Minnesota. The CENTRAC will advise, consult with and make recommendations to the Statewide Trauma Advisory Committee (STAC) based on regional needs.
CENTRAC establishes and promotes a regional system of trauma care services within Central Minnesota. This system provides timely and appropriate delivery of optimal trauma medical treatment for people with acute traumatic injury, and recognizes the change in methods and environment for providing optimal trauma care throughout the region.
The next CENTRAC Meeting will be held on Mar. 21, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the CentraCare Health Plaza lower level, in the Hughes Mathews room.
Having an understanding about the different needs within the region is very important. Therefore, CENTRAC has introduced an injury prevention program titled EVERYTIME. The EVERYTIME Program has been implemented in a number of high schools throughout the region for teen drivers. The goal is to raise awareness and the use of seatbelts, as well as eliminating accidents caused by distracted driving and texting. The students are provided with pledge cards and thumb bands to remind them of their commitment to not drink and drive, text and drive and to wear their seatbelt EVERYTIME they get behind the wheel. For a sample of the thumb band, pledge card, DVD or other information on the promotion of distracted driving, call (320) 251-2700, ext. 53807.
