About the Thematic Series

For a long time, the concept of the importance of decision-making within the first hour of admission has been used to improve the outcomes in trauma and stroke practice. Recently, this concept has been expanded to various other clinical disciplines including neonatal, toxicology, shock, etc. The philosophy of this approach utilizes the advancements in patient care algorithms, multidisciplinary approach, inter-team communication and collaboration protocols. The main aim of this is to shorten the delay between admission and start of definitive management, improving patient outcomes in the process. The present Series is an effort to comprehensively present the elaborative concept of decision-making within the first hour of admission and its expanded applications in one platform.

Journal Editors are seeking original research, and review article submissions on the following topics; however this list is not exhaustive, and contributors are welcome to modify or add a title of their interest.

Decision-making within the first hour of admission:
• scope and opportunities
• in trauma care

It is therefore very rare to have to wait more than 6 weeks for first editorial decision.
