Progress in traumatic occupational injury research and prevention, 1996-2005: a look at the first decade, and the future of the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA).
2005 National Injury Prevention and Control Conference, May 9-11, 2005, Denver, Colorado. Atlanta, GA: Centers and Disease Control and Prevention, 2005 May; :150
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) along with hundreds of partnering organizations launched the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) in 1996. The intent of NORA was to focus and coordinate limited national resources by developing a research strategy that could guide occupational injury and illness prevention research in the U.S. One of the priority areas included in NORA is traumatic occupational injury. This paper assesses the influence of the NORA effort on traumatic occupational injury research; progress made in addressing the specific research needs outlined in the 1998 NORA report - Traumatic Occupational Injury Research Needs and Priorities; and remaining research needs for the second decade of NORA. NORA influences are examined, including changes in funding and focus of research, in the volume of relevant research publications, and in the nation's work injury experience. Progress in addressing the published 1998 research needs is explored through a look at relevant research programs and findings of NIOSH researchers, and researchers outside NIOSH. Understand the nature and influence of the first decade (1996-2005) of the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) for traumatic occupational injury; Review progress made in meeting traumatic occupational injury research needs outlined in the 1998 NORA Publication - Traumatic Occupational Injury Research Needs and Priorities (NIOSH Publication 98-134); Learn of the remaining gaps in knowledge that need to be addressed by researchers studying the incidence, causes and prevention of traumatic occupational injuries.
