Inaugural meeting June 2018

NaTRIC (National Trauma Research and Innovation Collaborative) held its inaugural meeting on Wednesday 13th June at the Robin Brook Education Centre.  The focus of the collaborative was to engage individuals across all hospital and pre-hospital disciplines in trauma research.  The tickets for the event sold out quickly, demonstrating how valuable people viewed the idea of a national collaborative.

The rationale for NaTRIC is twofold; firstly, there is a real opportunity totake advantage of the infrastructure of the major trauma network in England.  This would allow individuals from trauma units and major trauma centres across the country to participate in research, and hopefully improve the patient experience and outcomes.  The second reason was in acknowledgement of the potential barriers for many health professionals to participate in research – many don’t know where to start, how to access supervision, and navigate the necessary paperwork. 

The meeting generated a number of great ideas for research projects, so the next steps are aimed at fleshing these out and working towards starting the first NaTRIC projects.  Watch this space!
