Defense Committees on Trauma (DCoTs)

DCoT Mission: Provide subject matter expertise to support the mission of the Joint Trauma System (JTS) to improve trauma readiness and outcomes through evidence-driven performance improvement.

The DCoT membership provides input and support to the JTS Chief on tactical, en route, and surgical combat casualty care through the ongoing development of evidence-based, best-practice guidelines designed to maximize survival in combat casualty care. The three component committees of the DCoT are the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC), the Committee on Surgical Combat Casualty Care (CoSCCC) and the Committee on En Route Combat Casualty Care (CoERCCC).
