Shaping the millennium; from the history of child-home injury in the united states, in public health journals (1900-1975), to applications of leadership systems.

Background: Using history, leadership systems, and personal reflections, the author assesses more than 120 articles on child and home injury prevention, published in Public Health Reports and The American Journal of Public Health, from the early 1900's to the creation of the American Public Health Association's Injury Control and Emergency Health Services Section in 1972. Learning Objectives: The awareness of the resulting "bookshelf" on injury prevention personalities, events and values, overlaid by several modern leadership systems conceptual frameworks, may better interface on the continued progress of modern injury epidemiological and prevention systems. The understanding of interacting historical and four modern leadership conceptual framework systems can promote newer evidence- based crafts and skills. More applied research, in service training and professional education curricula on examples of historical leadership in injury control can guide continued personal and field growth during losses of institutional memory and downsizing of resources.
