 Mississippi Trauma System of Care Symposium 2024 

Creating Consistent and Coordinated Trauma Care 

April 23-25, 2023 

Mark your calendar and make your plans to attend the trauma care event of the year. 

The Mississippi Trauma System of Care Symposium has confirmed the venue, date, theme, and tentative agenda. The symposium planning committee has been working hard. More information will be rolling out as it becomes available. Registration will begin in January 2024. The agenda is exciting, and the educational offerings blend our most requested topics and new programs that have not been offered before. MTCSF will continue the recognition and awards to trauma leaders statewide, as nominated by their peers. 

Tuesday, April 23, 2024, is a pre-symposium workshop with three breakouts. We will host the AAAM AIS15 on-site course for our Level I-III trauma center staff for the first time. The course is conducted over two (2) days and facilitated in person by AAAM faculty. There will be a registration cost for this course. For the first time, we will host the Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) for our MS licensed Emergency Medical Services staff. Cadaver labs will be offered as a third track for basic emergency procedures. 

Wednesday, April 24, 2024, the AAAM course will continue. TECC, a one-day course, will be offered to a second group of students. The Cadaver lab will be reserved for medical staff providers only. AirCare will teach advanced emergency procedures for physicians and advanced practice professionals on day two of the Cadaver lab. We will open a fourth track to provide Registry training with ESO staff. This will be one eight-hour course to meet annual training requirements. Certificates will be provided for each study completed. 

Thursday, April 24, 2024, will unite everyone all day. The morning sessions will drill down on the lessons learned during the Rolling Fork and Silver City Tornado beginning the night of March 24, 2023. Plans are to discuss the initial and secondary response starting at ground zero and including representatives at every level of the trauma system of care. This is an excellent format for hospital administrators as well as care providers. The students will learn from people directly involved. 

Most importantly, students will be provided substantive actions ready for implementation and the emerging goals to be better prepared for the next event. We are planning more surprises, but it is too soon to announce. In the afternoon, we will have updates from the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH, BACS). We are confirming other speakers for the afternoon. The symposium will conclude with a trauma panel of experts’ case studies led by our State Medical Director. As you plan for 2024, you will not want to miss this event. Mark your calendar today and make your plans to attend. Continuing education credits will be provided.
