One of the objectives of the Kansas Trauma Plan is to develop a regional system of trauma care, in coordination with adjacent systems, with the goal of reducing the mortality and morbidity of injured patients within a defined region. Regional Trauma Councils (RTCs) are a way to address topics and issues related to trauma care in a region. The structure and proposed composition of the various RTCs will foster interagency coordination, ensure local input into the decision making process and maintain strong effective working relationships. This structure allows local people to develop solutions to local problems.

An inclusive trauma system promotes regionalization of trauma care so that residents in all areas of the state will receive the best possible care. Initial coordination and support of the RTCs will be provided from KDHE. The RTCs will work in coordination with the Advisory Committee on Trauma (ACT) and KDHE to address issues and develop policy based on information from the statewide trauma registry, the pre-hospital data collection system and input from trauma personnel in the region. The leadership of the RTCs will be elected from the membership of the regional council.
