Traumatic Injury Research and Prevention Program NAS Evidence Report
In 2005, NIOSH requested that the National Academies undertake a review of NIOSH research programs with respect to their relevance, impact, and future direction. The Traumatic Injury (TI) Research and Prevention Program of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is seeking external review by the National Academies (NA) to assess its contribution to the public good and to improve its research. TI was guided in the preparation of the evidence package presented herein by the 12/19/2005 evaluation Framework. The Framework outlines a process for review of NIOSH programs and an organized list of examples of the kinds of evidence that the research programs could provide to assist with that process. We welcome this NA review as an opportunity to bring objective, expert insight to bear upon where we've been and what we've done, and to ultimately improve the relevance and impact of the TI program and it's potential to reduce risks, injuries, and deaths among workers.
