Welcome to the National Trauma Database (NTrD).
The NTrD is a MOH supported service to collect information on
outcome of trauma patients. The information can be used to
determine the frequency, mechanism of injury and distribution of
major trauma in the country. Such information is useful for
assisting the MOH, non-governmental organizations, private
providers and industry in planning and evaluation, leading to
trauma prevention and control.
The NTrD is sponsored by the Ministry of Health, Malaysia and
supported by several of its organizations:
Emergency Department, Selayang Hospital.
Department of Neurosurgery, Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
Clinical Research Centre (CRC), Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
The CRC of the MOH will provide technical support in the form of
clinical epidemiology expertise, and biostatistical and ICT
A Governance Board will be established to oversee the operations
of the NTrD. The MOH, universities, professional bodies, NGOs
and private healthcare providers will be present on this
committee to ensure that the NTrD stays focused on its
objectives, continuing relevance and justification.

maintain confidentiality in disclosure of data.
