3039.0 ICEHS Special Session on Injury Research Methods

Monday, November 9, 2009: 8:30 AM
The purpose of this session is to highlight various methodological approaches used in injury research. The presentations in this session are relevant to anyone with interest learning about advanced methodological approach to studying injuries, including technological advances, such as web-based tools and video analysis; spatial analysis; and advanced statistical methods, such as multilevel models.
Session Objectives: 1. Name five new methodological approaches to studying injuries. 2. Explain how technology such as web-based tools and video analysis can be used to describe injury events. 3. Describe how multilevel models are being used to improve the measurement of injury risk.
