Unraveling the Patient Journey: Pakistan's 1st Multihospital Trauma Registry Explores Disabilities

Injuries are responsible for a staggering 6% of all fatalities in Pakistan, underscoring a critical public health issue that demands immediate attention and heightened awareness.

Despite previous attempts to establish trauma registries at various levels in Pakistan, obstacles such as high costs and incomplete data have hindered their effectiveness. In response to this challenge, the team at CETE has developed a comprehensive digital trauma registry spanning multiple hospitals (Aga Khan University and Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre Karachi​). This registry is designed to systematically gather patient-reported disability outcomes (PROs) throughout the patient's journey, including:

  • one
  • three
  • six, and
  • twelve months after an injury.​​
