Injury Matters would like to thank all those that participated in the Know Injury program in 2017-2018! The Know Injury program was established in 2014 by Injury Matters, with funding from the WA Department of Health, to increase the engagement, capacity and delivery of injury prevention and community safety activities within the Western Australian (WA) workforce. This year the program has continued to develop and adapt to the needs of the sector and achieved great outcomes. The team have pulled together some key highlights to share with you.
