EU Injury Surveillance Network calls for an EU-injury data exchange agreement
On December 4-5, the EU-Network of National data administrators in injury surveillance met in Potsdam for its 9th annual meeting. The meeting reviewed the results of the Joint Action on Injury Monitoring in Europe (JAMIE) in countries and discussed progress of work in making injury data gathering and exchange more sustainable.

Given the proven feasibility of injury data collection in emergency departments, participants advised the European Commission to initiate a binding arrangement for all member states and associated countries to deliver hospital based injury data on a regular base. Such data exchange is essential for identifying priorities in health promotion and consumer protection policies in countries and for bench marking progress in programmes and measures taken in member states. read more...
European Seminar Falls Prevention: population based approach required across Europe

The seminar highlighted evidence-based approaches to fall-related injury prevention among seniors. National and local authorities are strongly recommended to forge policy coalitions across government departments and to provide co-ordinated fall prevention services to older adults in general and high risk older people in particular. read more...
