Examination of Narratives from Emergency Department Presentations to Identify Road Trauma, Crash and Injury Risk Factors for Different Age Groups

The Public Health Real-time Emergency Department Surveillance System (PHREDSS) is a health administrative data collection that can contain narrative text of the circumstances of an injury event and help identify critical factors leading to an injury event. In this study, the authors examine narrative text from the PHREDSS in New South Wales, Australia (2006-2012) to identify road users and crash and injury risk factors by age group. Their study reveals the potential value of the PHREDSS in supporting road safety and injury prevention efforts.
