The American College of Surgeons Trauma Quality Improvement Program (ACS TQIP) is a recent addition to the many quality improvement collaboratives that have been established in surgery. On the background of a well-established trauma center and its performance improvement activities, ACS TQIP offers the potential to advance trauma care and offers participating centers the opportunity to better understand their strengths and areas for improvement. The rationale for ACS TQIP's development, implementation challenges, and potential for advancing the quality of trauma care are described.
