Burden of Child and Youth Injury

In Canada, injuries are the leading cause of death and a major cause of disabilities for children and youth. We want to better understand how injuries affect children and their families. The kinds of things we are interested in learning are

  • how injuries impact children’s health
  • what might influence how children recover from injury
  • how families deal with having an injured child
  • what changes there are in children’s quality of life in the year after the injury
  • how much injuries cost families and the health care system

The results of this study can be used to help families and children who experience injuries in the future.
