Transport, interpersonal violence and sports related injuries reported by Australian adolescents

Chapman, Rebekah L. & Sheehan, Mary C. (2006) Transport, interpersonal violence and sports related injuries reported by Australian adolescents. In 8th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion, 2-5 April 2006, Durban, South Africa.


Injury is a leading cause of death and disability among young people. Mortality rates resulting from injury among young people reveal links to risk taking behaviour, consistently involving transport and interpersonal violence. Transport accidents are also a primary cause of hospitalisation among young people, while studies involving less serious injuries reveal that sport is a common causal factor. The Adolescent Injury Checklist (AIC; Jelalian et al., 1997) is a self report measure of the types of injuries experienced by adolescents in the past 6 months and the situations in which they occurred, whether these injuries were related to alcohol or other drug use and whether they resulted in medical attention. The AIC has been developed and used in both high school and Emergency Department samples, with data only having been reported for U.S. adolescents.

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.
