Where will the journey end?

Jones, Graham C. (1999) Where will the journey end? In McClure, Roderick (Ed.) Third National Conference on Injury Prevention and Control, 9-12 May 1999, Brisbane, Queensland.

Abstract

Before proceeding I wish to state that in preparing this paper I have used commentary taken from the publication of the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (IBC) 'Recovery'. I am pleased to acknowledge it in this particular forum, as the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia's Chief Executive, Neil Weatherstone is one of the keynote speakers. Every journey, no matter by what mode of transport, is commenced with the thought of reaching its final destination without incident. While safety projects, specifically road safety projects, are being undertaken throughout the world statistics show the enormity of injury and death. Concentrating only on road trauma in Australia, but more specifically Queensland, what is the major problem in the failure to safely conclude a journey?

Impact and interest:

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.
