Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) and Prolonged Casualty Care (PCC) Working Group Consensus Statement
JTS tackles the topic of PCC considerations after TCCC intervention in a statement released in April.
The PCC Guidelines are the standard of care for developing and sustaining Department of Defense (DoD) programs required to enhance confidence, interoperability, and common trust among all PCC adept personnel, but first, Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC)1 and how it relates to PCC. TCCC serves as the DoD standard of care for non-medical and medical first responders.2 The concepts outlined within the TCCC guidelines are prerequisite to developing and implementing capable PCC programs. TCCC provides a "principles based" approach to casualty management that is applicable to trauma and disease non-battle injury patients.
