Our faculty and staff within the Trauma Program of Children's Hospital Colorado are dedicated to improving outcomes for injured patients. Our success is due to the collaboration between all the services that impact injured children.
Learn how a trauma surgeon's research used big data from electronic medical records to create a brand new vital sign.
The Trauma Program has a very active group of research staff from all disciplines. They participate in clinical projects, federally funded projects through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Department of Defense (DoD) in the areas of trauma, burn, wound and critical care. The team also uses multiple databases to focus on injury prevention, outcomes and epidemiology.
"Our program encompasses prevention and prehospital care, as well as emergency, diagnostic, acute, surgical and rehabilitation care. We're also engaged in research, education and advocacy that helps injured children get back to being a kid as quickly as possible."
