Abstract
Dr. George Conway, Chief, NIOSH Alaska Field Station, described "Using Epidemiology and Surveillance Data to Develop Prevention Strategies." Dr. Conway began his presentation by listing the many data sources for the Alaska Occupational Injury Surveillance System (AOISS). He next described an epidemiologic tool, the Hadden Matrix, which divides injury events for analysis into three phases and three factors: pre-event, event, and post-event, and host/human, agent/vehicle, and environment. He went on to state that the CFIVSA focuses on the event and post-event stages and that future emphasis needs to be placed on the pre-event phase, prevention.
