Abstract

The Miami-Dade County Injury Surveillance System was created as part of a hospital-based injury prevention program associated with the Injury Free Coalition for Kids. Initially the program utilized trauma center and mortality data to describe injury. However, as community programming and coalition-building developed, so did the demands on the surveillance system. Coalition partners and potential partners desired a more comprehensive and population-based system. As a result of the countywide approach and open access to results, the surveillance system has engaged new partners and leveraged additional resources to injury prevention.
