Availability of Position Papers on Injury Control

CDC's National Center for Environmental Health and Injury Control (NCEHIC) and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health have sponsored the development of position papers on motor-vehicle injury prevention, prevention of violence and violence-related injury, home and leisure injury prevention, occupational injury prevention, trauma-care systems, acute-care treatment, and rehabilitation. The papers resulted from the Third National Injury Control Conference.

The objectives of the position papers are to 1) define the field of injury control, 2) assess the status of injury-control research and programs, 3) help CDC, other federal agencies, and nongovernmental organizations clearly define directions and priorities in a coordinated way, 4) identify what interventions should be evaluated and disseminated, 5) plan for the development of injury-control capacity in state and local health departments and other agencies, and 6) identify organizations and opportunities to implement various research and programmatic recommendations.

Copies of the position papers are available from the Division of Injury Control, NCEHIC, CDC, Mailstop F-36, 1600 Clifton Road, NE, Atlanta, GA 30333.
