Purpose / Aims: We gather and interpret information about causes of traumatic injury and treatment from trauma services across Victoria. We work to improve quality of trauma care across the State, and to identify and reduce major risk factors for trauma in the community. Our aim is to reduce preventable deaths and permanent disability from major trauma.
Population Captured: VSTR captures all major trauma patients in Victoria; broad-based inclusion criteria are used.
Outcomes Collected: VSTR collects routine in-hospital outcomes including mortality, length of stay, complications and discharge destination. In addition, VSTR routinely follows up patients at 6, 12 and 24 months after injury to collect health-related quality of life, function, disability, pain and return to work outcomes.
