Trauma.org supports the global trauma community by providing multiple ways for individuals to interact with each other, to connect to each other, learn from each other and improve the practice of trauma care together. Trauma care is still a new and rapidly advancing field, and the Internet provides a medium for providers of trauma care that can match the pace of such changes. Trauma spans the globe, and trauma care systems are evolving differently in different countries, in different states, different cities and different hospitals. The Internet provides the perfect opportunity for debate and discussion of trauma care. The Trauma.org website contains numerous community features, including the support of user-submitted content such as images and cases. The central points of the Community are the Trauma-List email discussion group and the new Trauma Blogs.
The TRAUMA-LIST email discussion group, established in 1995, exists to provide a forum for all persons involved in the management of the injured patient. Membership, currently at around 2700 participants, is global and includes all related specialities. It aims to bring together the knowledge and experience of doctors, nurses, paramedics, researchers, policy makers and all groups directly and indirectly related to trauma management.
Membership of the list is restricted to healthcare professionals. It is not an appropriate forum for the general public.
You can view previous discussions from the Trauma-List in the archives.

Trauma.org now maintains several weblogs for the trauma community. These are a new feature and we hope to grow and expand their use over the coming months. Currently there are two active blogs, a Trauma Research Blog for discussion of new and interesting research; and an editorial blog by Karim Brohi, the founder/director of Trauma.org. RSS feeds are available via the blog pages.
