Open Policy Forum on Child Injury Prevention

Open Policy Forum on Child Injury Prevention

An open policy forum on child injury prevention took place in Dublin Castle on the 18th November.  The purpose of the policy forum is to support the development of a Child Injury Prevention Action Plan for the Republic of Ireland.  Professor Kevin Balanda, from the Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH) contributed to the forum by giving a presentation on the day looking at ‘mortality, hospital admissions and self/carer reports of child unintentional injury in the Republic of Ireland from 2006-2015’, the report of which will be published by then end of 2016.  The presentation provides contextual information about the occurrence of injuries and so is helpful to support the development of the Action Plan making some recommendations for policy focus and highlighting gaps in the research that need to be addressed.
