• Pediatric Trauma Transformation Collaborative (PTTC)

    At Cincinnati Children’s we understand you want to provide excellent care to children in your community that suffer traumatic injuries. We too are passionate about children and our mission is to improve access to pediatric trauma care in our region and across the country. It is in keeping with the spirit of this mission that the Pediatric Trauma Transformation Collaborative (PTTC) was developed.

    The PTTC is the first program of its kind designed specifically for the needs of hospitals across the country seeking to maintain and / or obtain pediatric trauma verification through the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Through this unique multi-year collaborative relationship, partnering hospitals can leverage Cincinnati Children’s extensive experience and expertise as a Level I ACS verified pediatric trauma center to support their entire trauma program across the full spectrum of pediatric trauma care.
  • The PTTC provides a full array of educational and collaborative offerings to assist trauma centers seeking to improve their ability to treat pediatric trauma patients.  Whether your center is seeking additional training resources for CME, simulation and injury prevention or the intensive support of our full collaborative partnership as you prepare for your ACS verification, Cincinnati Children’s has a solution to fit your needs.
