Purpose / Aims: The ATR is a part of the Australian Trauma Quality Improvement Program (AusTQIP), which aims to develop and implement a national program to further improve the quality and safety of trauma care across Australia. Currently, 27 Australian and 7 New Zealand hospitals, designated as major trauma centres (MTCs), are part of the collaboration, and submit quarterly data to the registry according to the binational minimum dataset. Considered a leading clinical quality registry, the ATR is able to provide risk adjusted outcomes and is currently recruiting sites in order to provide population-based data in the future.
Population Captured: All trauma patients who present to one of the designated trauma centres with an injury severity score (ISS) greater than 12 or death after injury.
Outcomes Collected: ATR data is defined by the Binational Trauma Minimum Dataset. The dataset includes but is not limited to the details of the injury event, pre-hospital observations, injuries sustained, treatments received, in-hospital observations and discharge status.
