The indicators currently used in quality and performance reports for each of the facilities in Québec’s trauma care network were developed in 2008 and implemented in 2010. Minor modifications were made in 2015. With the availability of new scientific evidence, it was necessary to update these indicators.
It will, however, be necessary to refine their operationalization and develop statistical methods for their calculation and testing. They can then be integrated into the next evaluation cycle of acute care facilities with a trauma care designation.
