Trauma and injuries impact the global burden of mortality by more than 5 million deaths per year that equals 9% of the overall mortalities in the world. The increasing number of trauma related-conditions dramatically affects healthcare systems and expenditures. Trauma registers are an integral element of any developed trauma care system. The efficiency of the trauma care system is maximized when it is combined with a well-established trauma registry. Although low-middle income and developing countries sustain the highest rates of trauma and injury-related conditions in the world, they still underutilize the power of fully functioning trauma registry in improving care and trauma patients’ outcomes. Understanding the experience of the registry nurses would enhance their performance and empower the registry operational process. This study aimed to explore nurses’ experience in working within a newly established trauma registry in Saudi Arabia.
