In order to increase trauma-related research and elevate trauma on the national research agenda, the National Trauma Institute (NTI) issued calls for proposals, selected funding recipients and coordinated sixteen federally funded (Department of Defense [DoD]) trauma research awards over a four-year period. We sought to collect and describe the lessons learned from this activity in order to inform future researchers of barriers and facilitators. Fifteen principal investigators participated in semi-structured interviews focused on study management issues such as securing institutional approvals, screening and enrollment, multi-site trials management, project funding, staffing and institutional support. NTI Science Committee meeting minutes and study management data were included in the analysis. Simple descriptive statistics were generated and textual data were analyzed for common themes. PIs reported challenges in obtaining institutional approvals, delays in study initiation, screening and enrollment, multi-site management and study funding. Most were able to successfully resolve challenges and have been productive in terms of scholarly publications, securing additional research funding and training future trauma investigators. Lessons learned in the conduct of the first two funding rounds managed by NTI are instructive in four key areas: regulatory processes, multi-site coordination, adequate funding and the importance of an established research infrastructure to ensure study success. Recommendations for addressing institution-related and investigator-related challenges are discussed along with ongoing advocacy efforts to secure sustained federal funding of a national trauma research program commensurate with the burden of injury.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 September 2016.
All research outputs
of 17,359,532 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery, The
of 3,835 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 270,108 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery, The
of 83 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,359,532 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 76th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,835 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 65% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 270,108 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 83 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 46th percentile – i.e., 46% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
