China Trauma Collaboration

Project status: 

The burden of disease associated with survivors of trauma is substantial. With the rapid increase in motorization, combined with growth across many industry sectors, the burden of injury in China is likely to grow, placing considerable demand on pre-hospital, hospital and rehabilitation services.

We developed a long-term collaborative research and education program focused on pre-hospital and in-patient trauma care involving a number of hospital emergency departments in Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu coordinated by The George Institute, China. Some of the research goals are to identify patterns of trauma being treated in hospitals and developing an on-going trauma database, among other goals during the five phases of the China Trauma Collaboration.
