Background

GACI’s vision is to provide guidance and support to governments to significantly improve care of the injured in a sustainable and affordable manner through systematic provision of essential trauma services. These services should be available to every injured person in any location without regard to their personal characteristics or ability to pay.

 

Key Objectives & Outcomes

The key objective of the GACI Trauma Data Working Group is to promote wider and more standardised collection of data for injury surveillance and trauma care quality improvement. The main planned outcome of the GACI Trauma Data Working Group is to establish a minimum dataset to facilitate trauma registry implementation.
