Injury Surveillance Workgroups (ISW)
The Injury Surveillance Workgroup (ISW) is an ongoing Safe States Alliance initiative supported through a cooperative agreement with CDC, and includes representatives from Safe States Alliance, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), the Society for the Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR), and federal partners from NCIPC, and the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
The purpose of the ISW is to improve injury surveillance by examining important injury surveillance issues and challenges facing state injury prevention programs, and preparing consensus-based recommendations on these issues. Previous ISW efforts have explored hospital discharge data (HDD), state injury surveillance systems and databases, and the behavioral risk factor surveillance survey (BRFSS).
For more information about the ISW, please contact the Safe States Alliance national office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (770) 690-9000.
