Regional Trauma Advisory Board (RTAB) & Committees

The primary mission of the Southern Nevada Health District Regional Trauma Advisory Board (RTAB) is to support the Health Officer’s role to ensure a quality system of patient care for the victims of trauma by making recommendations and assisting in the ongoing design, operation, evaluation and revision of the system from initial patient access to definitive patient care.

Additionally, members monitor the distribution of trauma patients to ensure they are matched with the appropriate resources while still providing sufficient volume to each trauma center to maintain stability within the trauma system.
