The American Trauma Society (ATS) and the Society of Trauma Nurses (STN) have joined forces to develop the 2022 annual National Trauma Awareness Month (NTAM) campaign.
“Safe Surroundings: Preventing Violence and Promoting Peace Community by Community”
The American Trauma Society (ATS) and The Society of Trauma Nurses (STN) have come together in the development of the annual National Trauma Awareness Month (NTAM) campaign. With a documented rise in violence throughout our nation, the theme “Safe Surroundings“ is both timely and appropriate for our trauma centers to promote. Injury and Violence Prevention professionals from throughout nation have been responding to the rise in intentional injuries and deaths. Raising awareness and supporting violence prevention efforts is more important now than ever. This year’s committee chose four areas to focus prevention efforts on including:
- Intimate Partner Violence
- Firearm Injury Prevention
- Mental Health Awareness
- Community Violence Intervention
This year, the ATS and STN have partnered to provide a month long webinar series, offering webinar every Tuesday in May at 1 p.m. ET, starting on May 10. Learn more and register online below.
