Multidisciplinary trauma society for Australia and New Zealand
Trauma across the spectrum is represented by many clinicians who individually have been members of their particular specialty groups and colleges. The ATS focuses on multidisciplinary trauma management and as such members from many different specialities come together to benefit in the following ways:
* Networking across specialities both in New Zealand and Australia and internationally with colleagues working in the field of trauma from injury prevention through to rehabilitation.
* Access to the official ATS Journal â€śInjuryâ€ť This is an international journal which has many ATS members contributing to its well regarded content.
* Opportunities are made available for members to present papers at national and international conferences facilitated by the ATS.
* The ATS Traveling Scholarship is available to members to travel overseas and experience aspects of trauma care including clinical, education, and system development.
* The ATS Executive Committee is consulted by and has access to the Federal Government in relation to issues impacting on trauma care.
* The ATS is represented on the RACS Trauma Verification Committee working with this multidisciplinary group to set standards of trauma management across Australasia.
* Membership of special interest groups/committees is available including Trauma Research and Trauma Nurse Coordinators.
* The ATS has representation on the National Trauma Registry Consortium in partnership with CONROD in Queensland and the RACS.
