Instead of being viewed as a major public health problem, injuries have been perceived historically as unavoidable accidents that occur as part of everyday life. Over the last 40 years, however, many multi-faceted injury prevention interventions have been developed, implemented and studied. A large body of epidemiological and medical research has shown that injuries, unlike accidents do not occur by chance. In fact, like disease, the risk of injury follows a predictable pattern, thus making them preventable. IQSIP uses this body of evidence to facilitate the transfer of injury prevention research into emergency nursing practice, with the goal of reducing injury consequences to both patients and staff.
