Quarterly WA Childhood Injury Surveillance Bulletins


The West Australian Division of the Child Accident Prevention Foundation of Australia (Kidsafe WA) introduced Injury Surveillance data collection at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) in July 1986. The Injury Surveillance system was designed to provide timely clues as to the nature and causes of injuries primarily for use to develop injury prevention interventions.

In 1997 the WA Department of Health and Princess Margaret Hospital became responsible for producing reports on patterns of childhood injury in Western Australia. A new system for collecting.Injury Surveillance data at PMH was implemented in July 2004.
