The new handbook book sets out the context and background to this key public health issue, including new research into the scale of the problem, and provides practical advice on prevention through case studies and evidence of best practice.
The Public Health Outcomes Framework sets out five key indicators related to the prevention of accidents and the handbook supports the work to address these indicators as well as influencing many other areas of the public health agenda.
The handbook also provides valuable guidance on effective interventions for those involved in developing local strategies.
This resource is not just about accident prevention but complements other areas of public health by providing examples of principles and practices that can be applied across many areas of local prevention work.
