NICE has developed a draft quality standards for trauma for consultation.
This quality standard:
- covers assessment and management of trauma (complex fractures, non-complex fractures, major trauma and spinal injury) in adults, young people and children.
- describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.
- does not cover hip fracture or head injury because these topics are covered in the quality standards on hip fracture in adults and head injury.
