Traumatic injury is one of the main causes of death and disability worldwide, and poses a substantial economic burden to society. Most trauma patients have one or more fractures due to their trauma. Treatment depends on fracture characteristics and patient characteristics, such as age, comorbidity, health status and activity level prior to the injury.
To optimise the rehabilitation process, we developed and evaluated the Transmural Trauma Care Model (TTCM). The TTCM is an advanced transmural rehabilitation model for mild, moderate and severe trauma patients with at least one fracture, aiming to improve patient outcomes and to reduce costs by optimising the organisation, content, and quality of the rehabilitation process.
