Description:

Since 2001, the Safe States Alliance – a national professional association of injury and violence prevention professionals – has convened multidisciplinary groups of experts to recommend improvements to important injury surveillance practices. Its eighth group of experts, known as the Injury Surveillance Workgroup 8 (ISW8), were convened to develop recommendations for improving pedestrian injury surveillance efforts.

 

With support from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the ISW8 has developed a consensus report – titled Consensus Recommendations for Pedestrian Injury Surveillance – that includes 10 recommendations for improving pedestrian injury surveillance, including more comprehensive conceptual and operational definitions and strategies for enhancing pedestrian injury data collection and analysis. The report is designed to provide practitioners – particularly state traffic safety professionals and state and local public health injury prevention professionals – with recommendations for improving pedestrian injury data collection, analysis, and reporting.

 

During the webinar, participants will:
— Learn about 10 new consensus recommendations for improving pedestrian injury data collection, analysis, and reporting; and

— Obtain insights regarding methods, approaches, and data sources that can be used to enhance pedestrian injury surveillance.
