What Works in Preventing Injuries

A huge amount of research on preventing injuries is carried out across the world. It is difficult for injury prevention practitioners to keep up to date with the latest scientific evidence. Increasingly, scientists are pulling together all the high quality studies on particular topics and collating the results in systematic reviews.

CAPIC Systematic Review Database 

The CAPIC Injury Prevention Review Database is a searchable online database designed to support injury prevention practitioners with limited time to conduct their own literature reviews. It contains both reviews and systematic reviews in the areas of safety promotion and injury prevention.
