In the twentieth-century, evidence-based injury prevention and control strategies have contributed to a substantial decline in the number of deaths associated with injury. However, researchers in the field of injury prevention have often gathered their study methods from other disciplines; it can be difficult for injury investigators to locate all of the research tools that can be applied to problems related to injury. Injury Control: A Guide to Research and Program Evaluation addresses the growing need for a comprehensive source of knowledge on all research designs available for injury control and research. Included in this accessible guidebook is information about choices in study design, details about study execution and discussion of specific tools such as injury severity scales, programme evaluations and systematic reviews. Epidemiologists, health service investigators, trauma surgeons and emergency medicine physicians will find this a useful source for understanding, reviewing and conducting research related to injuries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A very useful and thoughtful compendium...the strenght of this book is in its breadth of coverage of issues that concern research in injury control. Although not mentioned as a potential audience, students and others new to the subject would find this a very useful text in a course on injury epidemiology and control." American Journal of Epidemiology
"Injury Control--A guide to Research and Program Evaluation is the fifth landmark text--one destined to propel the discipline to the next level. It is comprehensive, well written, and carefully edited. The editors are internationally eminent experts, all of whom are American, but the book has a welcome international flavor." International Journal of Epidemiology
"No source ... had the breadth of coverage, utility, or convenience of this primer. Moreover, none offered such good examples to illustrate the research applications ... Injury Conctrol is at its strongest." BMJ
