Knowesis provides technical writer expertise and data retrieval services to the DHA JTS for content and messaging which includes developing, writing, and editing Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs), operational procedures, user guides, how-to tutorials, and other technical documents pertaining to the JTS trauma care registries for both online and print publications. Knowesis wrote 12 CPGs that are distributed to doctors, families, and care providers of patients to establish best practices around certain conditions/injuries and therapeutic treatments.
One of the most critical areas we support is providing the evidence base necessary for the Tactical Casualty Combat Care (TCCC) guidelines to improve survival and long-term outcomes of wounded warriors.
The Knowesis staff conducts data analysis and provides liaison support services which include but are not limited to data abstraction, data presentation, data management, and knowledge management which assist in the overall performance improvement of the TCCC community.
