FORTE Project The Functional Outcomes and Recovery after Trauma Emergencies (FORTE) project is collecting data from patients to understand the long-term recovery experience after traumatic injury. Team members are building a database of long-term patient-reported outcomes after trauma to measure factors that are meaningful to patients and their families, including mental health outcomes, functional status, health-related quality of life, reintegration to society, and more. To collect this information, team members have made thousands of phone calls to trauma patients at three institutions: Boston Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Massachusetts General Hospital. This information is helping researchers understand the impact of social determinants, patient factors, specific treatments and systems of care on long-term trauma outcomes. The FORTE project is the first in a series of steps to eventually develop a multi-institutional, sustainable longitudinal registry of functional and patient-centered outcomes in the United States. NTRAP Project The National Trauma Research Action Plan (NTRAP) is a national collaboration among leading trauma healthcare systems and organizations, united to deliver a comprehensive strategic plan for trauma care research in the United States. As a key member of the initiative, our group at the Center for Surgery and Public Health at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, is leading the effort in identifying key patient-reported outcome measures relevant to long-term trauma care.

We currently have an exciting opportunity for a medical student, to join the FORTE and/or NTRAP projects. Students will participate in reviewing literature, extracting and collecting data, and preparation of manuscripts. Depending on the student’s familiarity with statistical software, the student can get involved in data analysis. Students are encouraged to submit abstracts to local and national meetings for presentation and contribute to manuscripts for publication as authors.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
