Utah Pediatric Trauma Network (UPTN)
The Utah Pediatric Trauma Network will develop, refine, and recommend methodologies, standards, and guidelines to reduce morbidity, mortality, and the cost of injury to pediatric patients in Utah. One of the primary goals of the UPTN is to help extend pediatric trauma expertise to all providers who treat injured children within the State. By collaborating with each facility, best care guidelines and benchmarks of quality care will be established based on the individual facility’s capabilities and resources. Thus, working towards the right treatment of each injured child at the right facility within the right period of time.
