Abstract : This observational study will be devoted to the analysis of existing (retrospective) data as noted in detail above. The data used for this study will be extracted from the Joint Theater Trauma System (JTTS) R2 Registry, which has been in place since 2008 and allows data collection at levels of medical care that previously did not have full trauma registry capabilities in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), and Operation New Dawn (OND). Aim 1: A retrospective review of all available data in the R2 Registry (n = approximately 15,000 records) will be conducted to evaluate combat casualty care using descriptive statistical analysis and modeling techniques. Aim 2: Identify the ideal provider training and competency assessment, sustainment and evaluation for medical staff (physicians, nurses, other licensed professionals, medics) deployed to the R2 environment.
