Health outcomes of injured young people

Project: Research

Project Details


Traumatic injury is the leading cause of death and a leading cause of hospitalisation for children and young people in Australia.

Beyond the initial injuries sustained, an injured child may face ongoing limitations related to their physical abilities, experience chronic pain and psychological issues, such as post-traumatic stress disorder. Their injury also impacts on their family and their community networks. Several research studies are being conducted to examine injury among children and young people in New South Wales (NSW), Australia.
