Injury surveillance supplement
The digital age has resulted in an explosion of novel data related to injury, but can this be harnessed and integrated to support the needs of contemporary injury prevention practice? This supplement, guest edited by Roderick McClure and Karin Mack from the CDC, explores the critical role that new surveillance systems can play across a wide range of injury challenges, with a particular focus on the use of technological tools to improve public health and wellbeing.
