Newgard, C., Braverman, M., Phuong, J., et al. (2022). Developing a National Trauma Research Action Plan: Results from the Prehospital and Mass Casualty Research Delphi Survey. (Abstract only.) Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery. 92(2):398-406.
The authors used a Delphi survey to create a mass casualty pre-hospital and trauma care research agenda. The analysis identified 81 high-priority research questions recommended for future investigations that focus on including health systems of care, interventional clinical trials and comparative effectiveness, mortality as an outcome, prehospital time/transport mode/level of responder, system benchmarks, and fluid/blood product resuscitation.
