Trauma Register

Despite developing countries carrying the greatest burden of injury, the implementation of trauma registers and systems for trauma care are lacking.

This project aims to evaluate the current trauma care quality in a resource-poor setting by retrospectively and prospectively studying adult trauma patients at MTRH in Eldoret, to improve trauma care efficiency. The ICD-based Injury Severity Score (ICISS*) derived from and validated on hospital data will be used. Patient data will be derived from records.

*ICISS = ICD (International Classification of Disease)-based Injury Severity Score.
