This thesis focused on the opportunities and limitations of trauma registries and outcome prediction models for trauma patients incorporating the following objectives:
1. The validation of outcome prediction models in subgroups of trauma patients
2. The analysis of case-mix and benchmarking issues
3. The improvement of trauma registries.
