Welcome to freeBIRD

A new website which allows the uploading and sharing of injury and emergency research data.

Making clinical trial data sets available to investigators beyond the original research team can improve patient care, advance medical knowledge and provide better value for money from health research.

The FREEBIRD website aims to facilitate data sharing in the area of injury and emergency research in a timely and responsible manner. It has been launched by providing open access to anonymised data on over 30,000 injured patients (the CRASH-1 and CRASH-2 trials).

We hope that other trial investigators will also upload their datasets and that FREEBIRD becomes a valued resource for all those committed to improving injury and emergency care.
