Developing and evaluating approaches for utilising injury data to support product safety initiatives

Catchpoole, Jesani Mitsuko (2015) Developing and evaluating approaches for utilising injury data to support product safety initiatives. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


With increasing concern about consumer product-related injuries in Australia, product safety regulators need evidence-based research to understand risks and patterns to inform their decision making. This study analysed paediatric injury data to identify and quantify product-related injuries in children to inform product safety prioritisation. This study provides information on novel techniques for interrogating health data to identify trends and patterns in product-related injuries to inform strategic directions in this growing area of concern.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
