Trauma Program Posts on Cedars-Sinai Facebook Page

As a Level I trauma hospital, Cedars-Sinai is a leader in providing the highest level of care for injured patients. To help prevent injuries, the medical center's Trauma Program has taken to social media.

The program has begun posting messages about the issue on the Cedars-Sinai Facebook page. The first message was posted May 1 for National Trauma Awareness Month, and the Trauma Program will continue posting once a month. Follow the injury-prevention messages by liking the Cedars-Sinai page.

The services of the Trauma Program range from prevention to rehabilitation. The American College of Surgeons requires all trauma hospitals, including Cedars-Sinai, to participate in injury-prevention activities.

Effective communication with the community on the prevention of injury is one of many roles for the injury prevention coordinator. In addition to social media, these efforts can occur in collaboration with emergency medical services personnel, police departments, and local, regional and national coalitions.
