Childhood injury prevention: Strategic directions for coordination in New South Wales

Report


Type Of Work


  • Report

Abstract


  • The NSW Child Death Review Team has a strong interest in injury prevention. In NSW each

    year, over 40 percent of deaths of children and young people aged between one and 17

    years are injury-related. While most injury does not – thankfully – result in death, the

    burden of injury is a significant public policy issue. Hospitalisations related to injury are 250

    fold higher than for deaths, and the cost to the health system is more than $200 million per

    annum nationally (Mitchell R, Curtis K, et al: 10 Year Review, University of Sydney 2017).
