Trauma Verification is an independent benchmarking process that helps to improve the standard of care for trauma patients. A multidisciplinary team is invited to  review a trauma service against international standards, identifying strengths and weaknesses and provides recommendations for potential further improvement. US studies have shown trauma verification-driven changes can reduce trauma mortality, hospital expenditure and length of stay.

Increasingly, the Trauma Verification Program is shifting its focus from individual trauma centres to entire trauma systems.
