The Australia New Zealand trauma registry – transport-related trauma
Submission Date: 2019
The Australian Automobile Association estimated the cost of road trauma at $30 billion a year1. Operating since 2011, the Australian New Zealand Trauma Registry collects trauma data from major trauma centres across Australia, and more recently New Zealand, in order to reflect and act upon emerging trends and demands on the trauma system, and to improve road safety across Australia. The ATR has data from nearly 30,000 road-transport related severely injured patients, that can contribute to improvements to road safety. The ATR seeks to increase its collaboration with road safety and transport peak bodies to use this data more effectively.
