REHABILAID is an EU funded project involving an observational, longitudinal, multi-centre study on people sustaining severe
injuries from road traffic crashes. It was carried out in three European countries: Greece, Germany, and Italy. A total of seven public hospitals were involved in the study: five in Greece (Region ofCrete), one in Italy (Pavia) and one in Germany (Hannover). Participating centres enrolled all patients who were admitted due to road accident involvement in the intensive care units of the selected hospitals over a year (2013-2014). Physical, psychological and financial costs were evaluated at baseline at 6 and 12 months.
