NIHR call for your views on trauma research priorities

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is providing a unique opportunity for practitioners involved in trauma care and research, including patients and carers, to identify key priorities for future research in trauma. In preparation for a planned workshop this summer, NIHR have produced a survey to look for the research questions and themes that should be discussed at the workshop.

As the NIHR explain:

“Trauma research is very broad and includes simple falls in children and the elderly as well as multiple injuries in car crashes. We are interested in your research ideas across the whole patient pathway: prevention, pre-hospital, in the Emergency Department, definitive treatment for trauma from head to toes, psychological issues and rehabilitation.”  

The NIHR is a key collaborator and supporter of the Centre for Trauma Sciences (C4TS) research programme. C4TS funds the AfterTrauma website and associated trauma community focused activities.

We encourage trauma survivors, clinicians, science professionals and families affected by traumatic injury to feedback your views on these important issues to the NIHR via their survey.

Deadline for comments is Friday 21st April 2017.
