The BVRAC vision is to take an ecological and multidisciplinary approach to the emergency medical system by unifying the Brazos Valley Region through public health, emergency management, injury prevention, acute care, and emergency services. BVRAC plans to engage the regional advisory council members, all trauma physicians, nurses, and emergency medical technicians, along with anyone else involved in emergency/trauma response to positively affect the knowledge and skills of the Brazos Valley community so that it can make health related gains before, during, and following emergency situations and trauma incidents.
The overarching goal is to provide comprehensive trauma care through strong partnerships, acute care via rapid response, and injury prevention by means of education and innovative programming. The BVRAC emphatically believes that a dedication to unity, special at-risk populations, and outreach education will continue to catapult not only the BVRAC, but most importantly the entire region into another level of service, trauma response, and prevention.
Since its inception, BVRAC has been active in trauma prevention and education programs as well as development and implementation of trauma patient care standards. Maintaining public education and awareness activities to increase the understanding of the trauma care system, access to trauma care and prevention of injuries, and providing coordination of acute medical services in mass casualty and disaster settings is an integral part of the mission and goals of BVRAC.
In recent years, BVRAC has developed a Perinatal and Stroke Committee for additional improvement and implementation of patient care standards.
