Overview

This is one of a range of injury-related topics we currently have available using data from the Health Research Council-funded Subsequent Injury Study. These include areas involving: costs of injury, specific types of injury (e.g. head injury), different mechanisms of injury (e.g. sport, motor vehicle), particular settings (e.g. home, road) or specific risk factors (e.g. alcohol, psychological, socio-demographic). A focus could also be on the Māori cohort (n=566) or on the Pacific cohort (n=239).

Funding for Masters fees may be possible.
