Open Access Supplement: ICD-10-CM Injury Epidemiology and Surveillance Methods

Injury surveillance - the ongoing, systematic collection, analysis, interpretation and dissemination of injury data - provides critical information to support public health efforts to reduce injury-related morbidity, mortality and disability. In 2015, the implementation of the tenth revision of the International Classification of Diseases, Clinical Modification system (ICD-10-CM) resulted in a major change in the way that many types and causes of non-fatal injury are measured.


This supplement highlights studies that help clarify methodological considerations when using ICD-10-CM coded data and that provide information to support decision-making for developing surveillance case definitions for subcategories of injuries. The studies cover a spectrum of injury topics including general injury, drug overdose, unintentional falls, intentional self-harm, violence, child abuse and neglect, traumatic brain injury and work-related injury.


The supplement is open access and was funded by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. Read the accompanying blog post from the guest editors and stay tuned for a podcast interview coming soon!
