Abstract

Reducing intentional and unintentional injuries is a key objective of Cumbria County Council and public health professionals, service providers and other organisations that make up Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) within Cumbria. Emergency Departments (EDs) can play a central and leading role, not only in providing rich and timely data, but in providing objective and informed recommendations for targeted prevention measures and interventions. This Trauma and Injury Intelligence Group (TIIG) themed report presents an overview of unintentional and intentional injuries in Cumbria, primarily using ED recorded data between April 2012 and March 2015. Data are discussed within the context of demographic trends and socioeconomic factors, including levels of deprivation. While ED data collection is generally excellent in Cumbria, there are several areas where data collection and quality may be improved. This report discusses these key data issues with particular focus on injury groups and enhanced assault information.
