GREETINGS AND SALUTATIONS!

Welcome to our new global website, designed to aid communication amongst the Trauma communityy in all corners of the globe. This nascent website is the work of John Bennett MD of www.InternetMedicine.com. We appreciate anyone out there who has news of any programs in your state. It is a website dedicated to the changes in medicine due to the internet, one of which is the ease and improved efficiency of communication in the rural trauma field.. On this site, we will try to spread the word on how technology impacts improvements on the treatment of trauma, especially in rural areas that are far from Trauma Centers. It has been repeatedly shown that survivability is improved if trauma treatment is rendered in a Trauma Center, but we realize, that, in many cases, this is not possible. However, with new tools to aid in visual communication, we can try to update the rural trauma community on how to better serve the rural trauma patient.
