Advanced Topics in Injury Epidemiology and Prevention, May 23, 2018

PRE-EPIC: Wednesday, May 23, 2018 // 1:30 PM – 5:30 PM

As the title implies, this course will introduce students to contemporary applied topics in injury epidemiology and the science of prevention. The course will be taught by accomplished researchers and experienced instructors, and will combine lectures with interactive discussions. Selected readings will ground students and build on the course material presented. Speakers will differ each year covering a range of multifaceted approaches to injury prevention and reduction. The title, speakers and several objectives are updated each year to reflect the specific topics covered. These applied topics will include both unintentional and intentional injuries, such as motor vehicle crashes, falls, concussion, drug overdose, child abuse, youth violence, self-harm and assault.

The applied topics in injury research for 2018, include: 1) Challenges enrolling concussion patients and collecting real-time data; 2) Ecological momentary assessment in concussion patients ; and 3) Biomechanics behind concussions.
