Collaboration is the key in creating national registries through emergency departments

Abdus Salam Khan, Sanniya Khan Ghauri.

Abstract
Despite the need for a national trauma registry identified back in 2009, Pakistan still struggles to have a national trauma registry. Some of
the challenges identified were the acquisition of a registry software, the commitment of all stakeholders for successful implementation, training of the workforce, planning of a data collection strategy, and validation of the data collected. Collaboration amongst emergency departments will remain key in tackling this herculean task. We propose to the stakeholders in each emergency department to study various registries implemented in the country as well as other low-income settings such as Kenya, India, etc., and start working
on this highly neglected area of research. This data which can reflect the national trends and burden will also serve purposes other than research, like resource allocation, disease forecasting, budgeting, and public health decision making.

Key words: Registry, Trauma, LMIC, Pakistan
