Trauma

We provide care for children from across the province who have a traumatic injury.
What we do

​Trauma spans the continuum of trauma care, including injury prevention, pre-hospital, acute care and rehabilitation.

We provide care for thousands of injured children yearly, and are dedicated to improving trauma care for injured children locally, regionally and provincially. These injuries range from minor to severe.

Most injuries are predictable and preventable. We can all decrease our risk of injury by recognizing and acting on the risks.

Information for Professionals

Trauma care

Injury prevention

Most injuries are predictable and preventable. The Trauma Program works with several programs to help decrease the number of childhood injuries.

Pre-hospital

We work with BC Ambulance Service and other BC Health Authorities to ensure quality care and appropriate transfer of injured children.

Acute care

We have developed guidelines and protocols for internal hospital use. We provide staff education programs within our regional trauma system and provincially. Quality assurance reviews are performed continuously. 

Rehabilitation

We have developed guidelines to ensure injured children receive the rehabilitation they require through our rehabilitation facility, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and BC Brain Injury.
