Ethics Talk: How Trauma Systems Respond to Change


Today’s modern trauma system is a relatively new phenomenon, and trauma surgeons are constantly responding to the changing needs of the populations they serve. This month on Ethics Talk, we talk with Dr. David Hoyt about the historic evolution of the trauma system from its roots in care on the battlefield, and explore how trauma surgeons are responding to the country’s aging population through geriatric trauma care in a conversation with Dr. Karen Brasel.
