Research Methodology SIG

Mission Statement

The over-arching goal of RMSIG is to explore current, state-of-the-art methodological approaches, foster communication among researchers and between researchers and practitioners and provide educational opportunities, especially aimed at new or junior investigators. We welcome participants at all levels -- those wanting basic information, experienced individuals looking for a new solution to a thorny methods problem, and experts wanting to share and exchange ideas. Together, we can improve the trauma research field.
