NSW Trauma App
ITIM has developed a clinical support tool known as the NSW Trauma app. It provides a "one stop" resource to assist clinicians in caring for the traumatically injured patients, from the initial resuscitation to stabilisation and transfer to a regional or major trauma service.
The aim of the app is to reduce unwarranted clinical variation through the provision of point of care access to up-to-date, evidence based information, enabling the delivery of optimal care to the injured patient.
To achieve this aim, the NSW Trauma app includes the provision of user friendly trauma resources for both adult and paediatrics, such as:
- Localised guideline repository
- Specific burn injury resources
- Interactive checklists
- Clinical timestamps
- Trauma related medical calculators
- Detailed NSW health facility information
During the project ITIM worked with The NSW Burn Injury Network in order to provide specific burn injury resources, these included:
- Specific interactive Burns Calculator
It is designed to be compatible with smart phone and tablet computer technology across iOS and Android platforms.

The NSW Trauma app is currently being adopted by the international trauma community with users downloading the app from Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and the United States.
In response to initial feedback, work has commenced on the next version of the NSW Trauma app – with improvements to the interactive burns TBSA and Parklands calculators, refinements of clinical calculators, additional NSW trauma services guidelines and improved user interface.
