Bergman AB, ed. 1992. Political approaches to injury control at the state level. Seattle, WA: University of Washington Press, 113 pp.

Annotation: This monograph is a result of a conference sponsored by the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center of the University of Washington.

Moore J. 1991 (ca.). South Carolina Childhood Injury Reduction Project = Project Care: Childhood Accident Reduction Effort [Final report]. Columbia, SC: South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, 36 pp.

Annotation: The purpose of the Childhood Injury Reduction Project (CHIRP) was to assume leadership in the development of a system by which data concerning fatal and nonfatal childhood injuries would be compiled, analyzed, reported, and ultimately used in the development of prevention strategies. The overall goal was to have a system in place by which childhood injury data were reported to a central agency by September 1991. Toward this goal, two impact objectives were developed: (1) A statewide surveillance system was to be established by September 1991 to provide a data base on childhood injury; and (2) a coalition of agencies and associations with interest in childhood injury was to be formed by September 1990 to focus on the problem and provide input into the development of the project.

Trauma Foundation. 1991. An advocate's guide to the cost of injury in the United States. San Francisco, CA: Trauma Foundation, 40 slides.

Annotation: This scripted presentation was adapted from a report entitled "Cost of Injury In the United States: A Report to Congress, 1989" which was prepared by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco and the Johns Hopkins University at the request of Congress and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It provides some data on injury types and causes, with motor vehicles and firearms accounting for 50 percent. The information presented illustrates that beyond social and emotional costs, injuries have a devastating economic price. Six areas of injury are discussed: motor vehicles, firearms, falls, poisonings, drownings, and fire and burns. The guide presents information from this report in graphic form in order to provide useful tools to advocates who will explain the economic consequences of the problem of violence in the United States.
