Trauma guidelines are a vital tool to assist trauma clinicians in making appropriate clinical decisions when caring for an injured patient. 

Guidelines are intended to provide a general guide to the management of specified injuries. They are not a definitive statement on correct procedures. Rather, they constitute a general guide to be followed subject to a clinician’s judgement in each case. 


You may also be interested in guidelines developed by the regional trauma networks. Note: The National Trauma Network has no editorial input into these guidelines and is not responsible for their content.
