What we do
We are leading the establishment of a contemporary trauma system in New Zealand that aims to reduce the number of deaths and severity of disability for those who survive. We achieve this by fostering:
Clinical leadership and coordination through a national network and four regional trauma networks offering nationwide coverage.
The New Zealand Trauma registry gives a national view of where major trauma happens, who it happens to and how this can inform policy and prioritised initiatives.
Develop trauma training and education opportunities to support the management of major trauma patients.
Strategic focus and quality improvement expertise to drive research and best practice care for trauma patients across the system.
A National Minimum Dataset for trauma, consistent with the Australian Trauma Registry to enable bi-national benchmarking
