The SHIPP-study is an ongoing multicentre study in Scandinavia aiming to validate and develop the Scandinavian guidelines for initial management of minor and moderate head trauma in children

(Åstrand et al, 2016).


The guideline stratifies risk for clinically important intracranial injury after blunt head trauma in children, and management recommendations are based upon this risk stratification.


However, before large-scale clinical implementation, a validation and further development study to ensure accuracy and security of the guideline has to be performed.
