Each year more than 50,000 people in England attend NHS hospitals because of injuries sustained from an acute trauma classified as major (moderate or severe). In addition to the immediate physical injuries sustained, it is likely that people will also experience a range of psychological and psychosocial effects caused by the traumatic experience itself, emergency hospitalisation and often lifechanging injuries. Whilst there have been great advances in clinical care to reduce mortality and limit the extent of physical injury caused by acute trauma, until recently, very little attention has been paid to addressing its psychological and psychosocial effects. At present, there is no care pathway or standards of care for psychological and psychosocial care following acute trauma across Major Trauma Services in England. The RePEAT project team has been brought together to develop and undertake a programme of high-quality research and innovation to produce an evidence-based and co-designed psychological and psychosocial care pathway for Major Trauma Services in England. The new care standards and pathway will be designed to improve psychological and psychosocial health and wellbeing outcomes and reduce health inequalities following acute trauma.
