Australian Trauma Quality Improvement Program
The Australian Trauma Quality Improvement Program (AusTQIP) was established in 2011 by the National Trauma Research Institute (NTRI) with funding from the National Critical Care and Trauma Response Centre (NCCTRC) and Alfred Health. It is a collaboration between all Australian and New Zealand designated major trauma centres and established state and hospital-based trauma registries.
AusTQIP is currently a collaboration of over 30 major trauma centres across Australia and New Zealand whose mission is to improve survival, enhance the quality of trauma care, and optimise recovery by shared data and shared knowledge.
