EXTENDED ABSTRACT: While the benefits of a whole-of-system approach to the prevention and management of trauma are widely acknowledged, operationalizing the systemic concept is difficult. As a result, the whole system is rarely visualized or evaluated in its entirety. In this paper we report the results of a policy simulation experiment that tested the relative benefits of a range of possible policies addressing different parts of the trauma care system. The specific aim of the study was to identify which of the investment options optimize the population satisfaction with the trauma system performance.
