Wolfson Trauma Cluster
Trauma is the world’s leading cause of death in patients under 45 years but is currently under-represented in terms of innovation and research. The Wolfson Trauma Cluster provides a platform for developing multi-disciplinary research links into the topic of trauma and its management.
We hope to become the Hub for UK Trauma Research and collaborations around the world. Currently, we are working with the Oxford Trauma research group, connected to the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, and other interested members of the College.
Each term we hold two open invitation trauma cluster meetings, preceded by lunch at the College. The outline agenda is as follows:
- An update on Oxford Trauma activities in the UK and abroad.
- An educational session on aspects of trauma care and the methodology surrounding trauma research.
- An open invitation general interest lecture.
The Wolfson Trauma Cluster meetings are open to all Fellows and students at Wolfson.
Our research theme is: patient engagement in trauma research. Priority Setting Partnerships is a James Lind Alliance method which brings together patients, their carers and clinicians to identify and prioritise unanswered questions about the effects of treatment (‘treatment uncertainties’) in specific conditions or areas of healthcare for research.
