Part of the The Plenum Series on Stress and Coping book series (SSSO)


The concluding question in the research protocol asked respondents to describe their conceptions of the ideal trauma center. This chapter summarizes their ideas, attitudes, and suggestions. Most are identified by their author. We offer their suggestions as a prologue to the final chapters, which describe our own conceptualizations of a comprehensive trauma center.
