Challenges for surveillance for injury prevention
Abstract:Injury surveillance has, and will continue to have, a critical role to play in reducing injury. If injury surveillance is going to realise its full potential in reducing injury, however, there are a number of challenges we need to address. These include: (1) agreeing on what is an injury, (2) focusing on important injuries, (3) improving surveillance of important injury events, and (4) improving surveillance of risk and protective factors.
