Injury and burden of injury

In 2014, SWOV, in its publication Burden of serious road injuries dissected looked into the injuries and injury burden of serious road injuries. This research has yielded some interesting starting points for the follow-up research which was started in 2016. Thus, the method to calculate injury burden was fine-tuned with the Erasmus University Rotterdam, VeiligheidNL and RIVM, and a more extensive investigation was made of the limitations of the method to calculate the burden of injury. In 2017, follow-up research will focus will investigate the share of casualties with permanent injury.

In 2015 and in 2016, there was special focus on the continued effect of the research. This has resulted in, among others, presentations and scientific papers.
