About Know Injury
Know Injury enhance the capacity of practitioners and organisations to deliver evidence informed activities. Our ultimate goal is to prevent injuries in Western Australia.
To achieve this we focus on three elements: Know, Learn, Connect.
- Knowing injury topics
- Learning how to adopt a public health approach to deliver injury prevention activities
- Connecting with others in the injury prevention sector
The Know Injury team provides knowledge and skills as well as networking and partnership opportunities, enabling practitioners to deliver evidence informed injury prevention activities.
Know Injury was established in 2014 and built upon the activities of the Partnership and Sector Development Program, Injury Prevention Sector Development Project, the Injury Prevention Professional Development and Capacity Building Project.
Know Injury is coordinated by Injury Matters and our principal supporter is the Department of Health WA.
Know Injury acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waters throughout Western Australia and pays respects to Elders past and present. We recognise the importance of continued connection to culture, country and community for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
