Injury Prevention SIG
The Injury Prevention SIG brings together researchers, practitioners and policy makers. Injury prevention is a significant issue in Australia each year injuries account for almost half of all deaths of people between the ages of 1 - 44 years, result in an estimated 8,000 deaths, 317,000 hospital admissions and costs the health system an estimated $2.6 billion annually.
njuries are preventable through: access to good information about the circumstance of the injury; provision of evidence based programs; targeting those who have responsibility for safety; and effective policy.
