This study evaluates the three, six, and twelve month patient reported outcomes of people admitted two trauma centres in western Canada over a four month period. Participants are evaluated using the Trauma Outcome Profile and a custom survey instrument.
This study intends to assess patient reported outcomes following discharge from trauma services at the Foothills Medical Centre (FMC) and Vancouver General Hospital (VGH). We will survey participants with pen-and-paper surveys at three, six and twelve months following discharge from hospital. The survey instrument being used is the Trauma Outcomes Profile, which has been previously validated in this population, supplemented by a supplemental survey to help further describe resources this population has access to in their recovery. The results of these surveys will be compared with pre-injury health status, injury types, mechanisms, and discharge medications and treatments. We anticipate enrolling 500 participants starting in October 2016. At the conclusion of the study we will have a better understanding of patient reported functional outcomes after trauma and will be better positioned to design trauma rehabilitation systems to service this population.

Extremity wounds and fractures constitute the majority of war-associated traumatic injuries, both for civilians and combatants. War-associated injuries are often contaminated with foreign ...
The aim of the study is to evaluate the performance of DURAFIBER Ag and to assess how many bacteria are present in infected wounds over an 8 week period.
This is a double blind placebo-controlled RCT comparing the speed of healing of simple traumatic wounds with Aloe Vera gel compared to both control (Ultrasound gel) and standard care.
Patients with diabetes may develop chronic wounds that respond poorly to treatment. Gene therapy with the platelet-derived growth factor-B gene has been shown to help with the healing of ...
Gunshot wounds and blast injuries to the upper limbs produce complex wounds requiring management by multiple surgical specialities.
The prevalence of thermal skin injuries is high. Despite new research findings, skin burns and acute cold-contact injuries, together with resulting tissue damage, are not entirely understood. In parti...
Injury scales have two main applications on homicide investigations, namely, to evaluate the severity of the victims' injuries and to identify the profiles of the offenders. However, few studies have ...
The spectrum of injury associated with anterior abdominal stab wounds (SWs) is well established. The literature in the specific setting of isolated omental evisceration is limited.
A peripheral intravenous (PIV) catheter is placed in 60% to 70% of neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) infants. Extravasation injuries occur in 18% to 33%, with 70% in neonates < 27 weeks of gestation...
Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.
WOUNDS and INJURIES and PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAUMA sustained during WAR.
Penetrating stab wounds caused by needles. They are of special concern to health care workers since such injuries put them at risk for developing infectious disease.
Penetrating and non-penetrating injuries to the spinal cord resulting from traumatic external forces (e.g., WOUNDS, GUNSHOT; WHIPLASH INJURIES; etc.).
Injuries caused by impact with a blunt object where there is no penetration of the skin.
