We are pleased to inform you that the 2017 Special Issue is titled “Injury Prevention and Health Promotion” and will be edited by David Sleet (CDC) and Richard Franklin (James Cook University).
The Special Issue will focus on the intersection between preventing injuries (unintentional and violence-related) and promoting health, considering the following topics:
- Priority topics of national importance (e.g. traffic injury, traumatic brain injury, falls, drowning)
- Areas of recent growing concern (e.g. youth suicide, mobile phone use, youth sports concussion, home safety)
- Areas likely to be of interest to HPJA readership / practitioners (e.g. child injury, theory-driven interventions, surveillance)
- Interventions (including RCTs) and systematic reviews that inform policy and practice
