Trauma Promise Campaign
Victims of road traffic crashes call for effective emergency care – the “Trauma Promise Campaign”
Victims of road traffic crashes call on doctors everywhere to promise to improve the care of seriously injured patients.
Thousands of deaths through road traffic crashes could be prevented by the early use of an inexpensive drug called tranexamic acid but victims want to make sure that it is being used in hospitals.
In a bid to save lives they are asking doctors to make the Trauma Promise: www.traumapromise.org.
The promise is a public commitment that tranexamic acid will be available when needed and that trauma teams know who, when and how patients should be treated.
