Regional Trauma Advisory Committees
The Commissioner of Health is charged to both seek the advice of the State Trauma Advisory Council (STAC) in implementing and updating the criteria and to adapt and modify the criteria as appropriate to accommodate Minnesota’s unique geography and the state’s hospital and health professional distribution. The latter requirement is aided by the contributions of Regional Trauma Advisory Committees (RTACs).
The statutory functions of the RTACs are to advise, consult with, and make recommendations to the STAC for regional modifications to the statewide trauma criteria that will improve patient care and accommodate specific regional needs.
