Top Quality

The UAMS Trauma Team, led by Dr. Ron Robertson, Professor and Chair of Surgery, continues to draw national recognition through the Trauma Quality Improvement Project (TQIP). The American College of Surgeons has invited Dr. Robertson to share UAMS’ experiences and best outcomes at the “TQIP Academy” session of the Annual TQIP Conference in Dallas in September. UAMS is recognized as a national leader in quality improvement in the Severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)/Pneumonia cohort. You may recall the news last fall that UAMS was in the top 10-20% of all Level 1 trauma centers in the country, and first placed in the top 1% for positive data relating to ventilator associated pneumonia. Great job!
