Aboriginal Child and Youth Injury

The following reports have been developed and are available at www.injuryresearch.bc.ca :

  • Measuring Injury Matters, Indicators for Children and Youth in Canada Volume 1&2 (Volume 2 defines and specifies the mainstream indicators)
  • Mesurer les blessures est important, Indicateurs de blessure chez les enfants et les jeunes au Canada
  • Developing Injury Prevention Indicators for First Nations Children & Youth in Canada
  • Developpement des Indicateurs pour la Prevention des Blessures chez les Enfants et les Jeunes des Premieres Nations au Canada
  • Injury Prevention Indicators for Inuit Children and Youth
  • Injury Prevention Indicators for Inuit Children and Youth (Inuktitut, Inuinnaqtun dialect)
  • Indicateurs de prevention des blessures chez les enfants et les jeunes Inuits

An unexpected challenge arose in Spring, 2012 when changes to budgets of our First Nations and Inuit partners resulted in our knowledge user partners losing the ability to allocate time and resources to injury prevention files. We hoped that our partners would have more time to assist us with report dissemination activities over the course of 2012, however that did not happen due to their reallocation of scarce resources from injury prevention activities to other priorities within their organizations. Consequently, increased uptake of these unique resources was stalled. Fortunately, a strong partnership with STAIR Team Executive Committee member Dr. Rose-Alma McDonald led to a research project with the Ahkwesahsne Mohawk Board of Education that analyzed injuries reported on incident reports during the 2011-2012 and 2012/13 school years.
