National Injury Prevention Day
July 5, 2023 All day
The recently published Cost of Injury in Canada report shows that, in one year, preventable injuries cost the Canadian healthcare system $29.4 billion. While hospitals treat injuries after they happen, medical centres have a key role to play, as well as a vested interest, in preventing injuries from happening in the first place.
National Injury Prevention Day brings an opportunity for us to shine a light on the preventability of injuries. It’s a chance to come together across disciplines to raise awareness that we have effective solutions to keep people from getting seriously injured or killed and to stop them from needing hospital/trauma services.
