The GOAL-Trauma Study: Global Outcomes After Laparotomy for Trauma

Trauma accounts for nearly 1 in 10 deaths that occurs worldwide

GOAL-Trauma is an international multi-centre observational study that will collect data on key parameters for patients undergoing a trauma laparotomy

The study will provide important information to stakeholders, academics, and governments to help target key areas in trauma care to improve overall patient outcomes


As a GOAL-Trauma Study Local Lead, you are responsible for setting up the study locally! 

This involves collecting data locally, creating & managing the mini-teams at your centre, and liaising with local surgeons, anaesthetists, and healthcare professionals for the study

You will be a key part of the study, leading the study at your hospital and ensuring its success!
