"As a practicing paramedic and now being responsible for senior paramedic training programs, I appreciate the value of TraumaCare, TraumaCare Express, and the other ITACCS educational programs. These days it is important to deliver effective training and education programs for paramedics, as their level of skills and sophistication continues to improve. At our facility in Miami, we have the opportunity to work with paramedics not only from our own community, but from other countries as will. It is important to recognize the reach that ITACCS has, not only here in the United States, but worldwide."

"As the Chief Emergency Physician at our busy trauma center in Las Vegas, our group is responsible for the care of over 5,000 trauma patients per year. ITACCS and its programs, in particular the Traumacare Journal bring to our trauma team unique perspectives, suggestions and recommendations in terms of practical day-to-day trauma management, but also keeps us up to date, on what is new in research on the inovative side of trauma care. Multi-disciplinary cooperation is key to optimal trauma patient care."

"As a nurse anesthetist, we are frequently 'front-line' trauma care providers in many community hospitals and non-teaching centers around the world. As the director of a graduate-level nurse anesthesia training program, I can attest to the value that the TraumaCare Journal brings to the educational process of better informing practicing nurse anesthetists and graduate students in our profession about cutting edge issues in trauma care today. Hats off to ITACCS for providing this service!"
