Dive into the data: Injury Epidemiology Online Workshop

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


The role of epidemiology in public health has come to light recently due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, epidemiological information has always been a core construct of injury prevention due to its ability to characterise the occurrence of injury, identify at-risk population groups and assist in evaluating injury prevention strategies.

How do we access and interpret epidemiological data?

WA injury prevention practitioners are fortunate to have access to multiple sources of epidemiological data to assist in quantifying the impact of injury on the community, however it can be challenging to interpret the various forms of data available.

Join Injury Matters with guest facilitator Dr Lauren Fortington, from Edith Cowan University, for the Dive into the data: Injury Epidemiology Online Workshop. Lauren is a Senior Research Fellow in injury epidemiology at ECU and a member of the Australasian Epidemiological Association.

During the workshop Lauren will share her knowledge regarding interpreting epidemiological data, to enable participants to understand the core constructs of data and apply it to their role.

This online workshop aims to:

  • Increase knowledge of the role of epidemiology in injury prevention.
  • Increase skills in interpreting epidemiological injury data.
  • Increase knowledge of how to access WA injury data.
  • Increase confidence to use epidemiological data to influence injury prevention initiatives.

Who can attend?

This online workshop is suitable for anyone looking to clarify or grow their ability to interpret injury epidemiological data, including; public health practitioners, health promotion professionals, local government workers, WA Country Health staff, recent environmental science graduates or undergraduate health science students.
