Recognising that there is a range of research being conducted in relation to road trauma, Know Injury and the WA Road Safety Education Committee developed this Evidence Bank.
By providing a summary of the available road trauma evidence together in one location the Evidence Bank aims to increase the awareness of reliable, accurate and authoritative research pieces that are available relating to road trauma.
When searching the evidence bank the following search filters are available:
Primary target audience – the segmented group which the intervention or focus of the evidence is aiming to have the greatest influence on.
Stage of injury prevention – the three different stages in which interventions can take place; primary (aims to prevent an injury from occurring in the first place), secondary (early detection and prompt intervention) and tertiary (lessening the impact of an injury which has occurred and preventing a recurrence).
Setting – the place or environment in which the intervention was conducted or targeting.
In the future the Know Injury Evidence Bank will expand to include;
- Alcohol and Drug Related Harm
- Burns and Scalds
- Suicide and Self Harm
