Developing countries are faced with challenges and pressures of health care inequities and scarcity of resources. There is an urgent need to provide both essential and cost effective trauma care. However, a major impediment to trauma system development and provision of essential trauma care in these regions is inadequate or nonexistent data. The under-registration of mortality and morbidity impedes accurate assessment of the true burden of injury, and results in a decrease of allocation of resources for essential trauma care.
An injury surveillance system based on a piloted regional trauma registry is the most important initial step for the development of trauma systems.
The International Trauma System Development Program in collaboration with the Panamerican Trauma Society has created an accessible, web based trauma registry in order to improve data collection and data management, for the generation of statistics that will identify the quantity, type and mechanisms of trauma injuries, as well as evaluation of internal and external resources needed for proper trauma patient management.
The objective is the provision of an integral injury surveillance system for specific evaluation and the follow up of the impact of current projects aimed at the development of a regional trauma system, specifically:
The process involves various elements including:
