Learning organizations are capable of addressing problems through information sharing and learning from past experience to facilitate improvement and innovation. Large system failure occurs when such interventions are not disseminated and implemented. This report discusses the need to ensure that lessons learned in military trauma care are acted on and sustained and recommends that this information be translated for the civilian health system as a way to reduce preventable patient harm in trauma care.
