A Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) is a legislative group representing trauma care providers and the community, affiliated with a Level I or II trauma center. It provides regional planning, development, implementation and evaluation of a coordinated trauma system.
A hospital may choose to join more than one RAC; if so, however, that hospital is required to designate a primary RAC.
The Metrolina Trauma Advisory Committee (M-TAC) promotes optimal trauma care in the Southern Piedmont region of North Carolina by reducing trauma related morbidity and mortality through the development, implementation and evaluation of a regional trauma systems plan. View administrative RACs (PDF)
