ARSC conference 2016

EXTENDED ABSTRACT: New South Wales is targeting a 30 per cent reduction in serious injuries over the decade. This presentation outlines NSW’s journey to develop and implement a serious injury reporting system which provides high quality data on all serious injuries from the hospital records, with details on the crash characteristics of those serious injuries that can be matched to a Police crash report.

This presentation also details the key results from the newly available data, how we are progressing on our target and how the availability of the data will impact on road safety policy and strategy in NSW.
