Information by Topic

Falls and motor vehicle crashes, which are related to mobility, are the leading causes of injury and injury death in older adults. There are many negative outcomes for older adults if they stop driving or fall, including reductions in their health, social interaction, and the ability to get around. CDC developed the MyMobility planning tool, using available scientific evidence, to help older adults plan for future mobility changes that might increase their risk for motor vehicle crashes and falls. Adult children or caregivers can also use this planning tool to help older parents, relatives, or friends.

Order hard copies of MyMobility Plan here via CDC-INFO on Demand for publications. You can customize the MyMobility Plan [PDF – 4 pages] with your organization’s name and address. There is a designated space for you to add contact information only (not logos).

Traffic Conflict Technique Toolkit

The Traffic Conflict Technique Toolkit [PDF – 76 pages] is a comprehensive guide that describes five different methods to evaluate the impact of a road safety intervention by collecting and analyzing traffic conflict data. A traffic conflict occurs when two or more road users are at risk of colliding if their movements do not change. The TCT Toolkit focuses on pedestrian-vehicle traffic conflicts in and around school zones in low- and middle-income countries. Download the TCT Toolkit [PDF – 76 pages] to learn more about how to improve road safety in school zones.

CDC’s WISQARS™ (Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System) is an interactive, online database that provides fatal and nonfatal injury, violent death, and cost of injury data from a variety of trusted sources. Researchers, the media, public health professionals, and the public can use WISQARS™ data to learn more about the public health and economic burden associated with unintentional and violence-related injury in the United States.

Hub for Injury Prevention

The Hub for Injury Prevention (HIP) includes CDC resources, as well as external resources from trusted partners related to injury and violence prevention practice. The HIP includes fact sheets, presentations, trainings, webinars, publications, and other documents that are intended for public health action.
