Improved trauma systems are a part of the solution to the global injury epidemic and have been very successful in Victoria. Can they work to reduce the 5 million trauma deaths elsewhere in the world?
India is tackling an injury problem of epidemic proportions. The Australia-India Trauma Systems Collaboration (AITSC) is a collaboration of clinicians and researchers, academic partners, and governments. It aims to develop and test some innovative pre-hospital, hospital, and post-hospital interventions that could improve care of the injured in India and Australia.
A round table, interactive forum was held 30 July 2014 to bring together practitioners, researchers and policy makers from Australia and India, and was an opportunity to engage and learn about the challenges of improving trauma care and how the AITSC is addressing these challenges.
