Incorporating a common set of core data elements in future child trauma studies can facilitate cross-study analyses and help advance our understanding of children’s responses to acute trauma around the world.
The PACT/R project is gathering expert input, and is learning from the challenges of harmonizing data across existing studies, in order to propose common data elements for future studies of acute child trauma. We welcome comments and suggestions from investigators in the field - write to us at childtraumadata [at] email.chop.edu.
