National Trauma Research Institute

Established in 2004, the National Trauma Research Institute (NTRI) is a department of
Alfred Health and Monash University, and is part of the Monash Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre, a tripartite alliance between tertiary educators, researchers and health The mission and the goals of NTRI are focussed on reducing death and disability, and improving the quality of life of survivors of traumatic injury. We do this through: • Innovative programs of research and research translation • Exchanging knowledge through effective partnerships and dialogue • Building awareness of the personal and community impact of traumatic injury • Mentoring the next generation of research leaders. NTRI’s primary programs of work include: • Neurotrauma Evidence Translation (NET) Program – a five-year, multi-faceted
program of research to improve care of people who have sustained traumatic brain • NTRI Forum Program – Seeking to improve the care of people who have, or will
suffer traumatic injury, this program brings together a diverse group of key stakeholders and develops strategies for practice and policy improvement through evidence review, consultation and structured stakeholder dialogue. • Centre of Excel ence in Traumatic Brain Injury (CETBIR) – a virtual research centre
established under the auspices of NTRI, which provides a focal point for brain injury • Victorian Neurotrauma Advisory Council (VNAC) – an expert body representing key

(PATCH-Trauma Study) – Funded by the Australian government, this study seeks to
address uncertainties about the safety and effectiveness of early tranexamic acid for severely injured patients treated in advanced trauma systems. • Basic Research Group – This program of work has been exploring the
pathophysiology of traumatic brain injury, representing a fundamental passage for understanding the consequences of trauma in patients by exploring experimental models and developing strategies with the objective of minimising delayed damage • Prevent Alcohold and Risk-Related Trauma In Youth (P.A.R.T.Y.) – This program is
an in-hospital, full-day interactive experience for young people focussed on trauma prevention and health promotion, ultimately seeking to reduce the incidence of preventable traumatic injury resulting from risk-related behaviour. • Living Systematic Reviews Project – a project focussed on building a global
