The purpose of this study was to measure the quality of the research presented at the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST) for the first 5 years.
Abstracts from the scientific assemblies of EAST, 1988-1992, were reviewed.
Five elements were identified for each abstract, the research question, the research design, the sampling method, the validity of the conclusions, and if the research question was answered.
These were identified because of their significant impact on the quality of the research presented in the abstract format.
Two hundred two abstracts were reviewed.
There was a significant improvement in research design, in the sampling method, in the validity of the conclusions, and in the proportion of research questions answered.
