Review Quotes
'Although outwardly the book is about injury, its style and breadth make it valuable to many other researchers ... I recommend it to anyone interested in trauma and to all A&E colleagues.' Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

'... a pervading enthusiasm that should inspire others to embark on new research in the field and a rich fund of example to stimulate fresh ideas ... No source had the breadth of coverage, utility or convenience of this primer.'Keith T. Palmer, British Medical Journal

"A very useful and thoughtful compendium...the strenght of this book is in its breadth of coverage of issues that concern research in injury control. Although not mentioned as a potential audience, students and others new to the subject would find this a very useful text in a course on injury epidemiology and control." American Journal of Epidemiology
'Injury Control A Guide to Research and Program Evaluation is the fifth landmark text - one destined to propel the discipline to the next level. it is comprehensive, well written, and careful edited. the editors are internationally eminent experts, all of whom are American, but the book has a welcome international flavour ... your shelf would be empty without it.' International Journal of Epidemiology

Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
This book addresses the growing need for a comprehensive source of data on all research designs available for injury control and research.
Description for Bookstore
Evidence-based injury prevention and control strategies have contributed to a substantial decline in the number of deaths associated with injury. Researchers studying these strategies are in need of a comprehensive source of information on all of the research methodologies available to them. Injury Control: A Guide to Research and Evaluation addresses this growing need and provides information on research tools such as injury severity scales, conducting program evaluations and trauma audits, and systematic reviews.Epidemiologists, health service investigators, trauma surgeons and emergency medicine physicians will find this the only information source available to guide them through injury research and evaluation.
Description for Bookstore
Injury Control: A Guide to Research and Evaluation addresses the growing need for a comprehensive source of information on all of the research methodologies available to investigators and clinicians involved in the field. Included in this practical guidebook is essential information such as how to conduct program evaluations and trauma audits, and how to use research tools such as injury severity scales.
Description for Bookstore
Injury Control: A Guide to Research and Program Evaluation addresses the growing need for a comprehensive source of knowledge on all research designs available for injury control and research. Epidemiologists, health service investigators, trauma surgeons and emergency medicine physicians will find this a useful source for understanding, reviewing and conducting research related to injuries.
Main Description
In the twentieth-century, evidence-based injury prevention and control strategies have contributed to a substantial decline in the number of deaths associated with injury. However, researchers in the field of injury prevention have often gathered their study methods from other disciplines; it can be difficult for injury investigators to locate all of the research tools that can be applied to problems related to injury. Injury Control: A Guide to Research and Program Evaluation addresses the growing need for a comprehensive source of knowledge on all research designs available for injury control and research. Included in this accessible guidebook is information about choices in study design, details about study execution and discussion of specific tools such as injury severity scales, programme evaluations and systematic reviews. Epidemiologists, health service investigators, trauma surgeons and emergency medicine physicians will find this a useful source for understanding, reviewing and conducting research related to injuries.
Main Description
In the twentieth century, evidence-based injury prevention and control strategies have contributed to a substantial decline in the number of deaths associated with injury. Until relatively recently, however, researchers studying these strategies have had to pull their methodologies from other disciplines, resulting in a lack of knowledge of all possible research methods and how to employ these methods in the field of injury control. Injury Control: A Guide to Research and Evaluation addresses the growing need for a comprehensive source of data on all research designs available for injury control and research. Included in this accessible guidebook is information on research tools such as injury severity scales, conducting program evaluations and trauma audits, systematic reviews, and ecologic studies. Epidemiologists, health service investigators, as well as trauma surgeons and emergency medicine physicians who will provide the post acute care of trauma patients will find this the only information source focused on injury control research and evaluation.
Main Description
Modern evidence-based injury prevention and control strategies have contributed to a substantial decline in the number of deaths associated with injury. Injury Control: Research and Program Evaluation addresses the growing need for a single comprehensive source of data on all research designs available for injury control and research. This accessible guidebook includes information on research tools such as injury severity scales, conducting program evaluations and trauma audits, systematic reviews, and ecologic studies. Epidemiologists and health service investigators, as well as trauma surgeons and emergency medicine physicians who provide the post-acute care of trauma patients, will find this the only current information source focused on injury control research and evaluation.
