Injury control : a guide to research and program evaluation ( Book )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
In the twentieth-century, evidence-based injury prevention and control strategies have contributed to a substantial decline in the number of deaths associated with injury. However, researchers in the field of injury prevention have often gathered their study methods from other disciplines; it can be difficult for injury investigators to locate all of the research tools that can be applied to problems related to injury. Injury Control: A Guide to Research and Program Evaluation addresses the growing need for a comprehensive source of knowledge on all research designs available for injury control and research. Included in this accessible guidebook is information about choices in study design, details about study execution and discussion of specific tools such as injury severity scales, programme evaluations and systematic reviews. Epidemiologists, health service investigators, trauma surgeons and emergency medicine physicians will find this a useful source for understanding, reviewing and conducting research related to injuries

Strategies to improve external cause-of-injury coding in state-based hospital discharge and emergency department data systems : recommendations of the CDC Workgroup for Improvement of External Cause-of-Injury Coding ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"Each year, an estimated 50 million persons in the United States experience injuries that require medical attention. A substantial number of these persons are treated in an emergency department (ED) or a hospital, which collects their health-care data for administrative purposes. State-based morbidity data systems permit analysis of information on the mechanism and intent of injury through the use of external cause-of-injury coding (E-coding). E-coded state morbidity data can be used to monitor temporal changes and patterns in causes of unintentional injuries, assaults, and self-harm injuries and to set priorities for planning, implementing, and evaluating the effectiveness of injury-prevention programs. However, the quality of E-coding varies substantially from state to state, which limits the usefulness of these data in certain states. This report discusses the value of using high-quality E-coding to collect data in state-based morbidity data systems. Recommendations are provided to improve communication regarding E-coding among stakeholders, enhance the completeness and accuracy of E-coding, and make E-coded data more useful for injury surveillance and prevention activities at the local, state, and federal levels. Implementing the recommendations outlined in this report should result in substantial improvements in the quality of external cause-of-injury data collected in hospital discharge and ED data systems in the United States and its territories."--Page 1

(CIT): Medicine: Mind the Gap Seminar Three-Part Series on Disease Prevention Screening Topic #2 Guidelines for Screening Children: Presented by David Grossman, M.D., M.P.H. Executive Medical Director, Senior Investigator, Pediatrician, Group Health Research Institute Prevention is often viewed as the cornerstone of pediatrics and child health. This view is supported by the tremendous advances in the prevention of infectious diseases and even some non-chronic conditions, such as many types of injuries. Infectious disease prevention has resulted largely from advances in immunizations and the use of preventive medication. Injury deaths have largely been reduced by advances in environmental health and engineering, and not through clinical services. Despite these recognized advances, there are still significant gaps in our understanding of pediatric clinical preventive services, largely in the domains of screening asymptomatic children and providing behavioral interventions to improve healthful activities. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has identified a number of key evidence gaps in these areas and issued a call for research to close these gaps. This seminar will focus on the evidence gaps in children"s clinical preventive services and will address how these gaps might be filled through a combination of different study designs that best address these gaps, including screening trials, treatment trials and observational evidence across a broad variety of conditions. David C. Grossman, M.D., M.P.H., is Senior Investigator at the Group Health Research Institute, Executive Medical Director for Population and Purchaser Health Strategy, and a practicing pediatrician at the Group Health healthcare system in Seattle, WA. He is also Professor of Health Services and Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Washington. In his current research and administrative roles, he leads Group Health leaders and researchers who address the design, promotion, delivery, and evaluation of population care services, including studies of the impact of health benefit design changes to promote prevention. Medicine: Mind the Gap is a seminar series that explores research design, measurement, intervention, data analysis, and other methods of interest to prevention science. Dr. Grossman will accept questions about his presentation via email at and on Twitter with #NIHMtG. Please complete the evaluation link
