European Trauma Registry Project

The Leicester Emergency Medicine Academic Group is part of the Trauma Audit and Research Network (TARN). With partners across Europe we are working towards a European Trauma Registry. We have agreed a standard set of data definitions (the Utstein Template), which have been widely implemented.

An April 2011 survey of the state of trauma registries in Europe found the following active Registries:
