Programme overview

The National Clinical Audit of Specialist Rehabilitation for Patients with Complex Needs Following Major Injury is conducted in partnership with the British Society of Rehabilitation Medicine (BSRM) and led by the UK Rehabilitation Outcomes Collaborative (UKROC), London North West Healthcare NHS Trust, the Trauma Audit and Research Network (TARN), Manchester University, and the Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College London. It will provide a comparative assessment of services provided in this area in relation to specialist injuries caused by events such as road accidents and falls.

Including the organisational audit, the programme has three main

  • An organisational audit to identify the specialist rehabilitation services providing care to trauma patients, and to map the pathways of care into and out of these services (July 2015-June 2016)
  • A prospective clinical audit of new patients presenting within the major trauma centres who have complex needs and receive specialist rehabilitation (July 2016-June 2017)
  • A feasibility study for identifying the pathway and outcomes for patients who require specialist rehabilitation on discharge from major trauma centres, but do not subsequently attend (June 2017-January 2018)
