NTRAP Aim 1:
Perform a gap analysis of military and civilian trauma research to identify priorities across the continuum of care.
For each of the 11 topic areas listed below, the NTRAP project team recruited interdisciplinary experts to identify gaps in the literature, generate research questions, and prioritize those questions using a consensus-driven Delphi survey approach. Each panel conducted four Delphi rounds in which participants first generated key research questions and then prioritized the importance of the questions on a 9-point Likert scale over three consecutive rounds of rating. Consensus was defined as ≥ 60% of panelists agreeing on the priority category.
All research questions that reached consensus were then tagged using an NTRAP taxonomy of 118 research concepts, which were consistent across all 11 panels. The taxonomy scheme consists of the following categories: Population, Phase of Care, Global Injury Pattern, Specific Injuries, Intervention, Observable Clinical States, Patient-Reported Outcomes, and Type of Research. Investigators may now request the Delphi Survey data from any or all of the panel groups and filter questions on any number of the category tags in order to see priorities and trends across study groups and topics.
