Understanding and Using Injury Cost Data in Your Prevention Efforts

Understanding and Using Injury Cost Data in Your Prevention Efforts

Dates: 
Friday, October 14, 2016 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Cost analyses add another dimension in setting priorities and are useful for comparing injury causes, assessing related health burden, and planning cost-effective prevention strategies. A recent analysis of 2010 cost data found that fatal and medically treated injuries resulted in nearly $30 billion in medical costs and $77 billion in work loss costs.

This webinar will provide a tutorial on conducting injury cost analyses and explore the many ways to use cost data in injury prevention efforts. Rebecca Spicer and Dexter Taylor will also present examples of cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness evaluations.
