INJURY CONTROL. A GUIDE TO THE CAUSES AND PREVENTION OF TRAUMA

This book attempts to familiarize readers with some of the newer conceptual approaches to analyzing injury producing situations and to bringing about prevention where possible and amelioration where prevention is not possible. Attention is given to injury on the highway as well as to injury in various other forms of transportation and in other settings, including home, recreation, work, and public places and institutions. The chapters have been grouped to examine injury in a variety of activity settings, to consider unique problems that plague particular population groups, and to examine the effectiveness of specific types of countermeasures. Where possible an examination is made of relevant similarities and dissimilarities of injury patterns between the North American cultural and environmental contexts and those of other parts of the world.
