Maximising the usefulness and timeliness of trauma and emergency registry data for improving patient outcomes

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

Trauma registries are datasets containing comprehensive information on the demographics, injury event and severity, processes of care and outcomes. Despite their existence in well developed trauma systems, the data is invariably incomplete, inaccurate, and cumbersome, making timely use of registries for improving patient care difficult. This Fellowship will build on the applicant's extensive local and global experience of registry science to improve the quality of registries. With the new environment being the largest trauma service in Australia, working with a team led by Professor Mark Fitzgerald, the fellowship will lead to improved use of trauma registry data to improve patient outcomes in a timely fashion.
