Injury Surveillance Training Manual for Instructors and Data Collection Form
The Injury Surveillance Training Manual is designed primarily for professionals who develop or operate surveillance systems and conduct prevention activities in less-resourced countries. The manual describes steps needed to establish and maintain an injury surveillance system; provides information on designing and monitoring prevention activities; and offers guidance for making informed decisions about injury prevention. The educational approach emphasizes basic epidemiological skills needed to conduct surveillance and prevention activities; participation by different sectors and institutions in injury prevention efforts; and injury surveillance and prevention activities at the local level.

A CD-ROM in English and Spanish is available, which includes Instructor and Participant Guides, PowerPoint presentations for each session, and data for session exercises.
