Trauma video review allows for monitoring of performance improvement initiatives, leadership skills, system process issues, and guideline compliance. Despite the well-documented benefits, there are persistent barriers to its use including patient privacy concerns, cost, and provider anxiety. Optimizing implementation by ensuring that informed consent processes are in place, as well as a structured peer review process, can help trauma centers overcome these hurdles. Trauma video review is a unique and beneficial tool that helps tie patient care to quantifiable data, as well as serves as a platform for education opportunities.
