As part of the 20-year anniversary of the Safe Kids Week campaign, the Unintentional Injury Trends for Canadian Children – June 2016 report highlights the burden of injury on Canadian children aged 0-14 years.
An update to the Child and Youth Unintentional Injury 10 Year Review produced by Safe Kids Canada in 2007, this 2016 report features Mortality and Hospitalizations trends, examines the burden of injury in the most current year of available data in the “Current Picture” and provides a special focus on injuries that occur ‘on road.’
Designed to inform a broad range of audiences, the report is useful to injury prevention practitioners, researchers, policy decision makers, students and anyone interested in learning about the burden of injury on children. Featuring counts, rates, and leading causes of injury hospitalization and deaths in children 0-14 over a period of time, the report highlights areas of persistent risk for childhood injury.
