A review of the quality of trauma protocols on the Internet

T Branfoot, C W Oliver

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A review of trauma protocols found on the Internet was performed in September 1997 to evaluate the content, presentation and usefulness of these resources. A wide variation was found in the nature of these 'protocols', the educational content and the academic strengths of the web pages. We attempted to define a protocol and a scoring system to assess these documents and reviewed each accordingly.
