Injury in America: A Continuing Public Health Problem by Division on Earth and Life Studies, Institute of Medicine, National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences, Commission on Life Sciences, Committee on Trauma Research (Paperback, 1985)
Injury is a public health problem whose toll is unacceptable, claims this book from the Committee on Trauma Research. Although injuries kill more Americans from 1 to 34 years old than all diseases combined, little is spent on prevention and treatment research. In addition, between $75 billion and $100 billion each year is spent on injury-related health costs. Not only does the book provide a comprehensive survey of what is kwn about injuries, it suggests there is a vast need to kw more. Injury in America traces findings on the epidemiology of injuries, prevention of injuries, injury biomechanics and the prevention of impact injury, treatment, rehabilitation, and administration of injury research.
