Two Priority Public Health Bills Supported by ENA Pass the House

February 27, 2018

Legislation supporting military-civilian partnerships in trauma care and training on how to identify and treat human trafficking victims moves to the Senate

DES PLAINES, Ill. - The Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) applauds the House for passing two of ENA’s public health legislative priorities yesterday.

H.R. 880, the Military Injury Surgical Systems Integrated Operationally Nationwide to achieve ZERO Preventable Deaths (MISSION ZERO) Act, establishes a grant program for military-civilian partnerships in trauma care that will allow both sectors to benefit from the others’ expertise and experience. This will improve the ability of trauma centers to treat traumatic injuries, including those caused by natural disasters, mass shootings, terrorism or automobile accidents. It also will allow military health care professionals to keep their skills sharp between deployments.

H.R. 767, the Stop, Observe, Ask and Respond (SOAR) to Health and Wellness Act, would provide health care professionals training on how to identify and appropriately treat human trafficking victims. As professionals on the frontlines of the U.S. health care system, emergency nurses are uniquely positioned to identify and assist victims of human trafficking.

Both bills now move to the Senate for consideration.
