At this time PTSF recommends registrars begin preparing for the implementation of AIS 2015 by participating in the AAAM AIS 2015 Injury Scaling Course. PTSF plans on offering this course at the 2020 PTSF Fall Conference in October 2020. Please note that students who have recently taken the AIS 2005 Update 2008 course may qualify to take an AIS 2015 special course that focuses on the major updates only. PTSF is also planning on offering this abbreviated update course for those who qualify in 2020. For more information regarding AAAM AIS please visit https://www.aaam.org/abbreviated-injury-scale-ais/. Stay tuned for further information including dates this education will be offered!
AIS 2015 is not currently required for compliance and there are no current AIS 2015 compliance deadlines. PTSF will NOT implement AIS 2015 into the PTOS dataset without stakeholder coordination and advanced planning. Please be patient as AIS 2015 requires a technical implementation time period. AAAM just recently released the AIS 2015 technical information to vendors so they may begin their technical product planning. Stay tuned for specific announcements related to implementation of AIS 2015 later in 2021!
