Injuries have causes -- they don't simply befall us from fate or bad luck.
To prevent injuries it is necessary to have information about the factors that contribute to their occurrence. With this information we may understand the options for prevention. Effective injury prevention requires a multifaceted, multidisciplinary approach.
The Injury Prevention Web hosts the Web sites of several agencies and organizations working to prevent injuries. This site contains a weekly literature update of recent journal articles and agency reports, injury data for every U.S. state, more than 1400 links to government and non-profit injury prevention sites worldwide, suggestions of books for your library, and the gateway for information about scheduled NIITS teleconference sessions.
