Alabama Trauma Care System

This project supports the continuing effort of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) to enhance and expand the activities of the Center for Injury Sciences at UAB. The Center's initiatives contribute to the Alabama trauma care system and to a better understanding of injury patterns associated with motor vehicle collisions and mass casualty incidents. In 2008, the Center will further support development of a comprehensive trauma system with emphasis on pre-hospital observations that aid in studying the integration of established motor vehicle crash investigation activities into mass transit accident analysis as a means to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with mass transit casualties. Emphasis will be placed on investigations involving bus configuration and operations.
