Background

KSMC, once established as a Level 1 Trauma Centre, will guide development of the ensuing Trauma System. This will require the establishment of a KSMC Trauma Research Institute, linked to the Trauma Service and Trauma Registry.

 

Key Objectives & Outcomes

Monash University, the National Trauma Research Institute (NTRI) and The Alfred will provide assistance in the establishment and research endeavours of the new KSMC Trauma Research Institute. The KSMC Trauma Registry will provide key data to demonstrate the effect of proposed changes on the health outcomes of the injured. This collaboration will involve utilization of the registry data, training in clinical research, research exchanges and combined research projects.
