Injury and Violence Prevention: Behavioral Science Theories, Methods, and Applications

JAMA. 2007;298(3):339-343. doi:10.1001/jama.298.3.340

Injury is the leading cause of death for the US population aged 1 to 44 years and is a major cause of hospitalization, emergency department visit, and disability. Child safety seats, safety belts, helmets, and other measures have been demonstrated effective in preventing injury and death. A current challenge is to identify effective ways to get people to use these measures. The outstanding new text Injury and Violence Prevention: Behavioral Science Theories, Methods, and Applications is the first to focus on the application of behavioral science to the problem of injury.
